Bamboo Saxophone

While we were in Baguio, we met a fellow YWAMer with an amazing talent for music.  He does not read music yet has been able to create a number of musical instruments which look and sound beautiful.  His various wind instruments are made of bamboo.  Sometimes he is looking for specific pieces of bamboo, other times something draws him to a unique piece of bamboo and is able to transform it into an instrument.

He was traveling with his family when we met at the YWAM Baguio Training Center.  In his bag he carried a selection of instruments which he uses to present the Gospel and to sell in order to fund his ministry further south in the Philippines, YWAM Batangas.

As he was showing me some of his creations, he gave us a treat by playing Amazing Grace on the bamboo saxophone he made.
