The “Duo” – who followed passion not fame.
I consider myself lucky to capture these 2 young and fresh talents “ON THE STREET”.
This is the story…
They both are only 19, second year music students from Poland. On their college break Maciek Hejmej came up with an idea to his freind Jan Bałaban about playing violin in Streets of London. Jan said “YES” before Maciek finished the question. Their family opposed in the beginning, but they agreed for these young blood to warm up their passion. Who have music in their genes from so many years.
They took a flight UK, started playing in the streets of London.Regent Street, South Kensington, Piccadilly circus etc…
A real inspiration for any other teenagers, who only complains about things they can’t do or don’t want to do. They all want fame without efforts, they just want to get money from their family and spend on outings and parties.
But these “Duo” were ready to take their passion to the people. They created an opportunity rather than waiting for one. They managed to overcame the initial “FEAR” by taking their passion to the streets. They were not worried about the criticism ; they were not worried about the money; they were not expecting fame. They wanted to take the music to the people, who are walking through the streets who may miss the melody in their daily “MOBILE -LIFE” not by streaming but from real strings.
Even though they played violin for Orchestras in Austria and Poland their passion to the bow and chords were limitless. They played from their heart not from the notes.
The songs and themes they choose were outstanding.My favourite is the GAME OF THRONES title song.
While I was taking the photos I saw so many music lovers paused to enjoy the tunes. They congratulated them and dropped the pound, to show their gratitude.
I present “THE DUO”…
Future of the youngsters who always think logically and creatively!!!
“Follow your passion from the heart, money and fame willow follow you obediently”
