Imagine when walking on the street, a group of people suddenly appear from nowhere and start to perform beautiful music or dance. Wouldn’t it be a nice surprise? Indeed, art brightens our days and soothes our minds with beauty and inspiration, especially when it happens unexpectedly. Flash mobs are such a lovely practice that delights the public’s eyes and ears. Today, we will present some amazing flash mob performances from around the world. The first one is performed by the Chamber Choir of Pontifical Xavierian University in Bogota, Colombia. They sang a beautiful song “Farewell to the Forest” composed by the famous German composer and musician, Felix Mendelssohn, on Bogota’s bus mass transit for the lucky commuters. This next one is a lively performance by Billi Brass Quintet. They presented a brass music surprise performance at a shopping center in Perugia, Italy. We’ll listen to the piece titled “Tango.” The bright brass sound and the accented dance rhythms of Tango created a joyful atmosphere and brought smiles to faces of the shoppers. The next flash mob performance, organized by the Good News Gospel Choir, took place at the Public Library of Valladolid in Spain. They sang a traditional Swahili song “Wana Baraka,” which means “blessed are the prayerful.” The folk hymn delivers assurance and trust in Lord Jesus Christ, reminding people to always pray. We will conclude today’s show with a dance flash mob performance in a mall in Vadodara, Gujarat, India. The performance was to promote Garba, a style of Gujarati folk dance. Dancers wear colorful costumes, swirling in concentric circles, which symbolize that in the cycle of birth, life, death, and rebirth, only the Goddess is infinite and eternal. Flash Mobs take professional music and dance performances out of theaters and into the mundane lives of ordinary people. By creating an immersive experience, such performances transport people to new places and leave them with memorable impressions. They are a powerful form of art that can touch hearts and uplift spirits.
