Listen to a violin strung with a human ponytail!

A Lithuanian actor and musician has his hair turned into violin strings while still attached to his head!

Actor and musician Andrius Mamontovas subjected himself to the experience as part of an annual event held in Lithuania called Street Musicians’ Day. 
Artist Tadas Maksimova was in charge of replacing the traditional violin string with Mamontovas’ hair (while still attached to his head) and, as you can hear, the tone is definitely comparable to traditional steel-wound strings.
