Holiday stories, part 4: "The Music and the Mountain"

Street musicians are always fun to watch. These guys caught me off guard, suddenly starting up in the outdoor area of the great La Botte restaurant, but I managed to shoot a bit of footage, albeit from a not-great vantage point. That said, it was nice to capture some of the local colour of people out dining on a lovely evening. I've thrown in some clips of Etna doing her thing, too.

Movie soundtrack fans should listen out for a tune from The Talented Mr Ripley, as well as a snippet or two of "Axel F" from the Beverly Hills Cop movies. Fans of the accordion might get lucky, too. Enjoy!

Tu Vuo' Fa L'Americano! A great scene from one of my favorite movies. We have a street musician here but he is more like an old homeless guy with a radio who yells a lot.
I can't believe that there was a volcano erupting so close you could shoot it. That would be incredible.

It's always important to look after the accordion fans in the crowd.

F/ball: You're so right, man. Definitely.

Andy: Hey, well spotted, that man! Yeah, you're street musician sounds like something from a Spike Lee movie. Volcanoes rock!

G/puss: You know it, sister!

Mr A: They are a very underrepresented part of the community, I think.

Great stuff! I love the casual way everyone just enjoys the music despite the volcano. Brilliant :-)
