This 9-year-old girl plays

Talent is a precious gift that distinguishes the person who has it, but at the same time, it must be shared with others. Why?

Not only in order to be recognized and appreciated as real talent deserves, but also because if a talent is unexpressed, it is very frustrating and alienating for those who are endowed with it.

Of course, this little girl understands this and she takes advantage of public spaces and venues to display her extraordinary musical talent for all to see, hear, and enjoy. Most certainly, it is not every day that we have the chance to hear such a talented violinist.

Her name is Karolina Protsenko, she is 9 years old and has an exceptional talent as a violin player. She first started playing this musical instrument at the tender age of 6, and from that moment she understood that in this instrument she had found her "soul mate". The violin is, in fact, her passion, her life; but at the same time, Karolina also felt that she wanted and needed to share it with others. 

"My desire is to bring some magic and inspiration to the world through my love for the violin", says the young violinist on her Youtube page.

So Karolina, in addition to recording albums of her musical performances, does not miss an opportunity to freely donate her art to the world, by playing in the streets and public squares of the cities wherever she may be.

Here we see her in Santa Monica, California, where she has enchanted the lucky bystanders with the famous song "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. 

Reinterpreted on the violin, the famous musical piece acquires an unusual brio, that attracted more and more curious listeners, who created a crowd around the young and very talented violinist. Among these was Carlos Gusti, who filmed the performance, and posted it on Facebook, where, in a very short time, the video was shared by 2.5 million users, and viewed 97 million times!!
