Young musicians performed a symphonic concert, playing diverse songs, from the theme song of the animation movie Mu Lan, to the theme song of Pirates of the Caribbean. 

Here, music was an universal language linking everyone together.

The interest in Chinese culture was also evident with certain athletes seen Chinese fan in hand and others forming groups to kick shuttlecocks around.

The Games' mascot also mingled and danced with the athletes. These nights, the Youth Olympic Village is undoubtedly the noisiest and most joyful place in Nanjing where youths of different cultures put aside all rivalries to the next day.
