Gladson Peter

One man who can play 45 instruments.

And the one-man band he has created.

Meet Gladson Peter.

Watching the 24 year old perform with 13 instruments that weigh 25 kilos is a treat for the soul.

"I wonder how I manage to carry 25 kilos and play so many different instruments with just 40 per cent of my lungs functioning. I believe the strength comes from above," he says.

Watch Gladson's inspiring story below.

Gladson, who works as a part time music teacher at a school in Mumbai, has just one dream -- to put a smile on as many faces as he can.

He is part of the Natural Streets for Performing Arts, an NGO which promotes street music, and does about 5 or 6 shows with them in a month.

"2016 was a good year; I have been doing almost 20, 25 shows in the last 2, 3 months."

Gladson has performed exclusively for you guys. ENJOY!
