We can pretty much guarantee that you’ve never heard Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean quite like this. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a beautiful cover version played on the sitar by musician Ronobir Lahiri, who gives the King of Pop’s megahit a whole new vibe.
After wowing us with his performance of Billy Jean, musician Ronobir Lahiri turns in a truly unique cover of Bob Marley’s reggae-folk classic Redemption Song, this time showing off both his sitar and his vocal skills.
Musician Rob Scallon proves that with the right technique, you can play any genre of music on any instrument, despite its original intent. While this “metal” track loses a bit of its edge on a traditional Indian 19-string sitar, it’s still surprisingly pleasing to the ear.
