Watch This Performance Of Beethoven’s Fur Elise Get A Middle Eastern Twist!

@lianatikian |

When this group of friends performed one of Ludwig van Beethoven’s most popular compositions, Für Elise, they managed to give it a unique twist!

They gave the classical piece some lively Middle Eastern flavors, with the musicians using the Middle Eastern derbake, daf, oud, and qanun to add to the vibrant Levantine vibes.

If the hard-of-hearing legendary composer were still around today, he’d approve of this rendition!

While this is an old video, it’s resurfacing for all the right reasons, and just when Lebanese around the world need a bit of cheering up!
