Two musicians (working separately) have covered the Game of Thrones main theme with traditional Indian instruments and it’s hard not to get into it!
The first, a Mumbai-based musician named Karan Chitra Deshmukh, gave the theme an Indian twist by playing its entire stretch on a set of Hindustani tablas.
Check out his cover below!
The second, Dubai-based musician named of Mahesh Raghvan, has brought a dash of Indian, classical tadka to the title track. Trained in Carnatic and Hindustani music, Raghvan’s skills give his cover a complete tonal shift with a strong Indian vibe.
Raghvan wrote in the description of the video uploaded on his Facebook page:
“Jon Snow comes back as Jonachandra Snownaswami for this Indian Classical version of the Game of Thrones Theme song.”
