African Style of Coldplay – Paradise (Peponi) by ThePianoGuys

Last night, I stumbled upon this wonderful group in YouTube called The Piano Guys.  I tell you, they are awesome. Music so lovely……..

Enjoy and have a happy weekend!

Cello: Steven Sharp Nelson
Piano: Jon Schmidt

with Vocals: Alex Boye

The story behind this song:

As they started arranging the music, they suffered a writers block. Then on a whim, they changed it to African approach. With Alex and his contagious energy that gave new life to the song – He sings the tune in 4 different languages: Swahili, English, Yoruba (his mother’s native language), and Alex’s own African “scat” (They call it…Scafrican) =) Most of the words you hear are translated from the lyrics in the original Coldplay Tune.

After hearing the song, I am now a huge fun of Alex and ThePianoGuys — I bet you are now too!
