Barcelona resident happy his serenade helped people forget coronavirus

The clip, taken while the 37-year-old computer programer was confined at home under Spain’s state of emergency, has been featured on national media in a country hard hit by the pandemic.

“One neighbor asked me if he could join on the saxophone. I’d never even seen him before,” he said of the video, which features Barcelona’s iconic Sagrada Familia basilica in the background. “In the end I played (the) ‘Titanic’ (theme tune) and he joined me mid-song.

“If such a lovely, viral video can make people forget – if only for a little while, for five minutes – about the coronavirus and always talking about the same thing, then that’s great.”

Dozens of musicians and singers across Spain have regaled neighbours with music, since the government imposed strict lockdown measures on March 14 in a bid to slow the spread of coronavirus.
