There’s something about a cello that makes it far superior to other stringed instruments. The sound it produces is delicate and light enough to carry a tune on its own, but soulful enough to make the depth of sound seem like it’s being channeled by something otherworldly. The call of whales is similar: low, sullen tones that inspire emotion in people the way that no other animal sounds do. That being said, it makes sense that these beluga whales enjoy the sounds of the cello so much. Once this boating cellist starts playing, the reaction just under the surface of the water is absolutely incredible.
Beluga whales seem as enchanted by the soulful sounds of the cello as we are. http://goo.gl/MhaeaI Posted by explore.org on Tuesday, August 18, 2015
