As people are going through a very tough time amid the second wave of the coronavirus that has gripped the nation, they are looking for some respite to ease their minds and soul. And what better way to heal the wounds that a child’s soothing performance. Now, a cover of the iconic Bob Dylan song is creating waves online and people can’t have enough of it.
Indian fusion band Advaita’s bassist Gaurav Chintamani (@g_chintamani) recently shared a video of his son, Ishaan, singing the famous ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ in a sweet home performance. The 2.15minute video showed the father-son duo casually jamming together while sitting at a table — with the boy singing the profound words.
As the little boy was seen turning pages of a book while performing his soulful rendition of the song, Chintamani explained that one of their favourite books is American comic artist and illustrator Jon J Muth’s illustrated book on Dylan’s 1963 iconic protest song.
“That book, this song has helped answer the questions that the little dude has asked us, on race, freedom, equality. Those questions, this song will never stop being relevant,” he wrote while sharing the clip.

Most beautiful thing I experienced today … Of course well performed but more than that nothing like the reassuring look of a father and the smile that it evokes on the child’s face. Well done father and son! https://t.co/KBJQTEEc5u

However, little Ishaan isn’t the only one in recent time who won the internet with his musical talent. Earlier this week, a toddler stole the hearts of many users online with her cute performance of ‘Agar Tum Saath Ho’. Alongside her mother, who was seen playing a ukulele, the little girl created a huge buzz online with her tiny hand gestures like a seasoned classical singer.
