Watch six monkeys make music with synthesizers

A video that asks and attempts to answer the question "do monkeys like music and do they enjoy creating music?"

The internet is a brilliant place because it allows you to come across people who think to ask questions like “do monkeys like music and do they enjoy creating music?” and then make videos of a series of monkeys (and related animals who might also be interested) messing about with different synthesizers. You can see a Lion Tamarin playing (and we mean ‘playing’ in the loosest sense of the word) a Roland TR-909, a Sloth playing a Yamaha SHS-10 and some Baboons having a go on a Casiotone CT-360. Don’t say we don’t tell you about the important stuff.

Thanks to The Wire for bringing this to our attention.
