From The Daily News Turkey
The thousands of demonstrators who gathered once again late on June 12 in Gezi Park had an opportunity to chill out thanks to a joint piano concert performed by the German musician Davide Martello and the Turkish musician Yiğit Özatalay.

The Italian-born pianist and composer, who visited Taksim Square and the park, surprised its “occupiers,” bringing with him nothing less than his piano and gave a mellow concert for the crowd, Doğan news agency reported...Martello was on a world tour and he wanted to play in Istanbul to support the protesters, daily Hürriyet reported. “I brought the piano with my car. I play at the squares for people’s freedom. I came here to support the demonstrations,” Martello said.
