Sometimes people forget to switch off their mobile phones in circumstances when, if it rings, it disrupts. Phones have gone off during Dharma Talks and meditation periods and it’s hard to address the disruption in a way that is both skillful and clear. Here is somebody who addressed the problem during a musical recital with skill, poise, kindness and humour.
Slovakian viola player Lukas Kmit reacted coolly when a mobile phone interrupted his recital at the Orthodox Synagogue in Presov, in Slovakia.
Rather than losing his temper, Kmit adapted the notorious Nokia theme, much to the delight of his audience.
Thanks to Paul who sent the link.

A great response.
And there is a Japanese artist, Hiromi http://youtu.be/5mF5QlEbvps, who also incorporates ring tones into her performance if a phone rings. She is quite the thing if you like what she does. Jazz/classic?
