Many of us are lucky enough to love artists who we consider to be “hidden treasures.” These artists are not well-known by mainstream music fans, and to be honest, and we sort-of like it that way. While many of us would love it if more people came to appreciate music from our favorite artists, we also feel special in knowing that we are among the few on the planet who’s in on the secret. Peter Bence is one of those artists you might not hear a lot about in America, but that doesn’t mean he’s not one of the most talented musicians in the world!
Bence is actually an internationally acclaimed virtuoso pianist, composer, recording artist, and producer who also happens to sport a Guinness World Record. He’s in the books as being the world’s “Fastest Paino Player.”
Over recent years, he took the world by storm with his incredible music arrangements covering such famous artists as Queen, Micheal Jackson, and Sia, racking up over 800 million views and an enormous following on Facebook and YouTube. And he did this all in three years!
Bence began playing music when he was only two years old, playing back songs after just listening to them!
His parents began his formal musical education when he was four, in his hometown of Hajduboszormeny, Hungary.
In this video, Bence plays Toto’s “Africa” on the piano while using his hands and feet. I guarantee you’ve never seen anything like it! Check it out in the video below.
Was that not amazing? If this is your first time experiencing the genius of Peter Bence, please don’t hesitate to pass this incredible gift along to your friends and family.
