The performance in a village in Malawi was captured on camera and shared on YouTube on August 2, 2014.

Music is a universal language. It connects people from varied backgrounds. People forget everything else and dance to the beats even if the music is not part of their culture.

Many find it hard not to engage just like the children from an African village that a musician visited.

It was the first time that the group of African children heard the beautiful sound of the violin. Their reaction was all about pure innocence and joy they felt.

A Nashville-based musician, Park, is seen with a few children holding her fiddle. They have never seen or heard the instrument before and wait curiously for the woman to start playing.

Park then strikes the strings of her instrument several times. The children are all ready to dance and their excitement is clearly visible on their faces.

The children are ecstatic and some of them even jump as the musician strummed the violin.

Park beings to play a quick song for the children as they start jumping and dancing around. The place is turned into a grand dance party with the children moving to the sound of the music.

Their face lights up with delight and they truly enjoy the bluegrass fiddle tunes. The musician was perhaps moved by the energetic dance and the adorable children.

The little ones prove that one only needs the simple joys in life to be happy. They can dance with joy with just some soulful music.

Rumble reported that Park has been “singing, playing, and sharing the Gospel of Christ in villages since she was 15.”

The musician currently performs with Jimmy Fortune, a former Statler Brother and The Annie Moses Band with Josh Carswell. She is gearing up to release her own album in the future.
