"Romancing the Wind"

The guy flying the kites is in his 80s. He flies one in each hand and the third is attached to his belt, which he controls with his body. I have no idea how he does what he does and keeps the strings from getting all tangled.

Watch to the end to see the landing of all three kites, especially the last one.

A friend I sent the video to said the that music is about two maidens and a chief in a love triangle. Maybe that's why there are three kites.

(I could be wrong about the music subject. I'm paraphrasing from memory.)

Two maidens and a chief and nothing tangled?   That can't be right.   :p

Amazing video.

How the heck does he get the kites to almost leap into the air initially?!   Launching the kite was always our biggest problem.

Or the other way around: the guy has the ability to fly three kites and do a ballet in the air with them, let's find a song to go with that...
