Summertime gentle mini-concert on the #97 bus, man on djembe (and singing a verse), little girl on vocals

So I'm riding the #97 bus, earlier today. I sit near the front, the first front-facing seat, just past the side-seats for the elderly/ disabled. Guy to my left, also on first front-facing seat, is gently drumming his fingers on a big djembe. Nice, sonorous beats, not too loud. No one seems to mind, no one complains, bus driver seems fine with it. Suddenly I hear this sweet young voice piping in. A little 7 or 8 y.o. girl, sitting on side-seats near him, with I assume her brother and her mom (drummer's gf or wife, probably, or maybe sister or friend), this little girl starts singing Gershwin's "Summertime". What a lovely concert. He/ they also do some gentle Marley, and "I Can See Clearly Now", more. From Crawford in Skokie to past Clark in Chicago. Driver enjoyed it too. #Chicago #Summertime #djembe #impromptu #CTA
