In this video, we met Yanto and his daughter Marly, they share a very special bond and a joint love of music.

Marly has Prader-Willi Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that causes poor muscle tone, intellectual impairments and constant hunger.

Marly was born at the same time as the elephant Mali at Melbourne Zoo. Yanto’s dad penned a song called “Two Marlys” to celebrate their joint birthdays. It’s one of Marly’s favourite songs and shows just how important music is to this family.
