Colours adorning the walls of many laneways of Melbourne. Music breaking through the sounds of the city crowd. Beautiful images crafted by the hands of skilled artists. But these are not your typical artists – these are buskers. And not any typical busker – these are Melbourne Buskers.
These performers, be it music or art, brings in the crowds. They make up the vibrancy of the city. They bring character to an otherwise concrete jungle.
They’re the life of Melbourne.
Buskers stop people in their routine to appreciate things they don’t typically encounter: the colours, the music and the art.
For this, here’s a tribute to some of the many buskers in Melbourne. Oh, and do as I did: show your appreciation by donating a coin to these performers.
