Brazilian Man Plays ‘Yesterday’ and Other Songs on His Guitar While Undergoing Brain Tumor Surgery

While Brazilian bank worker Anthony Kulkamp Dias was undergoing surgery for a brain tumor during which he was required to be awake, he was able to play and sing a number of songs, including the classic Beatles song “Yesterday.”

(translated) Last week, the neurosurgeon Dr. Mark Ghizoni and his staff performed a single surgery in order to extract a brain tumor during which the patient is kept awake. This time, the tests carried out during the procedure, went beyond the interaction through gestures and talks between the patient and the surgical team. Anthony Dias Kulkamp, 33 years old, sang and played guitar while the doctors performed the surgery. It began with Emanuel, music that he composed his son, born a few months ago, followed by Yesterday by the Beatles, one in German song, Greater Good (New Clothes) and the hinterland song ‘Telephone Mute.’
