South African Singer Plays Guitar During His Brain Surgery by Gossipninja: 11:53pm On Dec 23, 2018
South African jazz artiste, Musa Manzini, played his guitar while surgeons operated on his brain.

A video of Manzini taken during the six-hour surgery for a brain tumour, shows him lying on his back in the operating theatre, surrounded by scrubbed-up medical staff, plucking the strings of his guitar.

This allowed doctors in Durban to observe which areas of his brain he used to play music, allowing them to preserve those areas and also restore some movement to his fingers, which were affected by the tumour. .

“I felt very awkward and uncomfortable,” Manzini told Reuters a week after the operation. “Being in between general anaesthesia and awake and hearing the sounds of a blow torch inside your brain...it’s very difficult to concentrate.”

Doctors opted to keep Manzini awake in order to assess which areas of his brain were functioning as the surgery went on, helping to reduce the risk of neurological damage.
