Quebec, Canada based Death Metal trio OBVURT has just released a video of its performance at Saint-Albert-Le-Grand Elementary School. You can watch the performance at this location. Guitarist and music teacher Phillippe Drouin, who re-learned the instrument using his left hand after a car accident robbed his picking ability, explains: “The physical education teacher and school principal introduced me to this idea. He was thinking about a party to celebrate the end of the school year by doing a show in the school backyard where Philippe teaches music. He knew about the release of OBVURT – “The Beginning” on March 31, and thought about the idea to bring OBVURT – “The Beginning” to life in the school backyard. I wasn’t sure at first, it was strange to me. But all the kids knew about the fact that I switched to left handed and released something before the pandemic started. That show became a big surprise when the kids recognized the musicians and the OBVURT logo on the amp. The kids really enjoyed the performance, which was very inspiring to us and we were pleased to release this unique performance video.” More about OBVURT at www.facebook.com/obvurt
