When the musician showed his skills on the drum kit, the crowd began to chant “Ole, Ole, Ole”. After that, hundreds of people asked Mr. Connolly to take a picture on his way home on a dirt train.

“People were shouting my name on the street, it was very surreal,” Connolly said.

“And it’s strange that it felt natural when I was playing there and when I joined it.

“I know people can wait a lifetime and never get such a chance. I had that chance and it was the realization of my dream. It was only once. If I had to do it, I had done it and loved it. “
