One of the great joys of life is that there is always something new to learn about and experience. I also love the creativity and inspiration behind new ways of presenting existing art. I therefore could not stop jigging and toe-tapping while watching this brilliant performance of Dire Straits’ Sultan of Swing:
Korean musician Luna Lee re-creates western classics on the gayageum, a Korean instrument which dates back to the 6th century. In this clip, you can see that she has recorded multiple tracks which combine to give a full rendition of the song.
For comparison, and all-round general groovy enjoyment, here is Dire Straits performing their original version:
East meets west; old meets new. But isn’t everything just the same underneath? 🙂
“We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface but connected in the deep.”
― William James
