An Indian musician, no doubt missing his audience, has found an unlikely substitute in the shape of two friendly parakeets that have been coming to his window in Mumbai. One of them, it seems, is keen on collaboration, too.
Jatin Talukdar has named his new pals Jim and Kairi. He said that when the seeds he’d used to lure them to his window ran out, he was unsure they’d hang around. But they have – and this video suggests it might be because they are music fans, or, indeed, wannabe performers.
“I was randomly strumming few chords, and these guys surprised me,” Talukdar said, as one of his videos showed one of the parakeets squawking along expertly as he played.
It was “like a real gig experience,” Talukdar said. Credit: Jatin Talukdar via Storyful
