Indian Classical Version Of Summer Hit 'Despacito' Is Viral. Heard It Yet?

The Indian classical version of the song 'Despacito' has been viewed over one million times on Facebook


Puerto Rican pop singer Luis Fonsi and reggaeton star Daddy Yankee's bilingual smash hit Despacito is undoubtedly the song of the summer. A remix featuring Canadian singer Justin Bieber has only helped the catchy song dominate the airwaves. And where there's a hit song, there are sure to be plenty of covers. An Indian classical version of Despacito is currently viral on Facebook. The mellow cover features flute, tabla and an iPad App (hello, 2017) and has been viewed over a million times already.

The video features Mahesh Raghvan on the iPad App GeoShred, Praveen Prathapan, or The Flute Guy, on - you guessed it - flute and Janan Sathiendran on tabla.
 
 
 


Posted to Facebook on Monday, the video has been shared over 23,000 times and collected over 38,000 reactions.

"Awesome work guys," writes one person on Facebook. "This song is not so easy to make an Indian classical fusion... but you guys pulled off very well."

"The flute and tabla combo gave me goosebumps," writes another.

And if you liked this video, you'll probably love Mr Raghvan's desi take on the F.R.I.E.N.D.S theme song.
