He is one of the best street singers in the world. That old and talented man is playing almost everyday in the centre of Brussels. He has become a living monument in the city, everybody loves him!

Please, also have a look at THIS VIDEO showing him playing 2 of his favourite songs (I recorded it yesterday!).

The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10, which has been provided to me by Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.

Your Songs

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Your songs are so beautiful
Like roses and gardens sapphire
With their moments never dull
As days come clearly in desire
The sweetness of your singing
In pomp and circumstance
With every street front bringing
In days of embrace and trance

Like love-song of the minions
In silences and tone bend
For the street daughters and sons
That colors mix and blend
In every footstep going
Where everyone once is for all
In the songs and words knowing
That comes in their daily call

Your voice rises from sleep
Onto the banquet of its time
For the days onward to keep
From guitar’s strumming rhyme
O love songs of the streets
Among the folks there walking
Of pure instances stepping feet’s
And in all its audibly talking

Many town loves have been torn
Inside endless dispute and flow
And each their sound newborn
In beginnings of daybreak's glow
When feelings are low and blending
During endless time and space
And on to the futures commanding
Within your tone blend and grace

Like love-song of the minions
In silences and tone bend
For the street daughters and sons
That colors mix and blend
In every footstep going
Where everyone once is for all
In the songs and words knowing
That comes in their daily call

Wow, he's really good. It's a shame that such people are pushed out by people who have no talent.
He has the spirit of bluesman!

Aw, that's awesome. :heart: We have a guy in our city that you can see walking around all the time. He always wears white too. We call him Dancin Dave. He'll dance for you if you give him some money. He's like a monument to our city as well.
