Adele's "Rolling In The Deep"Covered by a Chinese Guzheng player!
I love hearing covers of contemporary Western songs by traditional instruments like this one! It takes the song to a completely different (and amazing) place while still retaining the familiarity listeners have to the original song! The guzheng or gu zheng (Chinese: 古箏) also simply called zheng (箏, gu 古 means "ancient"), is a Chinese plucked zither. The guzheng is the ancestor of several Asian zither instruments, such as the Japanese koto, the Korean gayageum, and the Vietnamese đàn tranh. It should not be confused with the guqin (another ancient Chinese zither with no moveable bridges).

The way the vibrations make am echoing sound really echoes the riffs adele uses. impressive cover.
@MasriDaniela I found this tutorial video for you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oF2Ov6jt0qQ But you would have to get a hold of a guzheng first to begin playing, haha
