The story of Hamelin, the town where every sound was banned, told by the grandfather, called the lame, to his granddaughter. Many years ago the children of the town were forbidden to make noise, but the day the piper came all children joined him and his wonderful music. None returned. Only one child remained, the lame. From that day on, every sound was forbidden and without children and without music, people shut themselves away in a grim silence. But today there is something new in the air: the sound of a barrel organ that, magically as then, will get together all people and make the children play. Again. A modern fairy tale with ancient roots, to tell that children are the world’s music.
