Copenhagen: At their windows, neighbours form a spontaneous music band

In Østerbro, a neighbourhood in Copenhagen, people started to play music from their windows. It resulted in a beautiful scene in which the neighbours formed a music band, playing and singing songs together.

This spontaneous act of community follows the example of choirs and flashmobs that emerged in cities in Italy and Spain.
