I had just arrived at the 2013 Buddha's birthday celebrations in Jeju City, South Korea and was making my way through a large crowd of people who were eagerly awaiting the start of the annual Buddha parade when I saw these little monks waiting for the event to begin. As I got closer, a few of the boys picked up their instruments, looked to the sky, and gave an impromptu and boisterous performance.
