WATCH: Old man playing harp wows neighborhoods in Cebu City

In the Facebook post made by Albert Chan Paran on August 14 (Fri), he featured an old man he identified as Manong Benny Costanos, who is a resident of Inayawan, Pardo in Cebu City, Philippines.

Harpist in Cebu City

According to Paran, Mr. Costanos has been playing the harp in the streets for the past 18 years since 1997.

He walks the city and go house to house to play beautiful music in order to earn a living to support his family. He does the chore rain or shine, Paran said.

He can be a perfect addition to an orchestra, Paran commended.
He's a perfect additional member of an #orchestra given that once in a lifetime chance. I could hear the sound of the piano, guitar/ukelele and harp all at the same time. It would be very moving seeing him on center stage performing his great #masterpieces. 
Watch and listen to the melancholic strums of Mr. Costanos:
