A Young Woman Plays “The Man Who Sold The World” on Traditional Korean Gayageum

The best cover after Nirvana’s! Most definitely! You gotta love these traditional instruments that nobody even knows exist. Then somebody will show up out of nowhere and do an amazing cover of a very famous song on it. And it sounds like this! Just wonderful! You have to listen to this one. This girl really knows her stuff. Bowie must be smiling listening to this beautiful version of his song.

The instrument is called gayageum and it is a traditional Korean instrument. And a very old one at that. It has 12 strings and this girl is playing it like it’s nothing!
