VIDEO: Woman Sings Calming Lullaby to Sleepy Elephant in Thailand

This is very special.

Una Kavanagh

There’s something pretty special about this video that’s emerged online.

Filmed at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, a woman called Fek sits by the side of an elephant and sings a soothing lullaby to it while it relaxes.

As the video progresses, the elephant (Faa Mai), drifts off into a peaceful sleep, while Fek keeps the flies away. There’s no denying that there’s a strong bond between these two and it’s beautiful to see.

The video was featured as part of Thailand’s Save Elephant Foundation. You can see more of their work here.
