A “Universal Language”: Musician Mesmerizes Animals With His Handpan Drum.

Horses and cows enjoy handpan music.

Animals love music just as much as we do. Don’t believe us? Check out musician Warren Ruiz on Instagram! This artist plays soothing songs on the handpan for cows, horses, and other creatures, and they’re enraptured by his performances. Being able to connect with animals through this “shared symphony” means a lot to Warren, who thinks of it as “uniting all forms of life in one ephemeral moment,” as he says in this caption.

“What a joy to be able to play my music for our animal friends,” he writes in another post. “They give us so much I find it so obvious to return that love to them when I can through my melodies.”

Here are some of our favorite videos of this animal-loving musician sharing his talents with his four-legged friends!

1. These cows were thrilled when they “herd” this tune.

2. A group of horses seemed very relaxed while listening to this song.

3. This sleepy kitty made the purr-fect audience.

We hope you get to enjoy some restful moments this week that make you feel as relaxed and at peace as these animals listening to handpan music!
