Super Mario theme on Ancient Chinese Instrument

Just when I thought the piano and guitar renditions of the Super Mario theme were mind-blowing, this performance on an ancient Chinese instrument known as a sheng blew my mind away!

Its unique shape reminds me of Frankfurt Dom. The origin of sheng dates back to 1100 BC and has been improvised in later years to expand its tonal range. It’s amazing that an ancient instrument mimics the theme from the games so well. Listen out for the coins!!! Definitely guaranteed to bring a smile to all Mario fans!
