Man calmly plays piano while anti-lockdown rioters start clash with police in Barcelona went viral

A surreal scene was caught on camera during a chaotic night erupted on the streets of Barcelona, a pianist was seen calmly playing a rendition of the Bangles' hit Eternal Flame amid lockdown rioters start fires and clash with police.

Peter William Geddes, who was playing in Plaça Nova on 31 October, said the Guardian as the violence escalated in the background he felt peaceful: 'When I play I am very calm. No nerves.'

The violence erupted after prime minister Pedro Sánchez declared a state of emergency and imposed a nationwide curfew between 11:00 pm and 6:00 am on October 25, with people only allowed to leave their homes for essential journeys.

Over the weekend, further anti-curfew protests in Madrid, Valencia and Málaga saw shop windows smashed and bins being torched. The country’s prime minister Pedro Sánchez has since called for an end to the “violent and irrational behaviour”.
