“We Found Love” remake brings you the sights, sounds, and radiant joy of Kenya

Lindsey Stirling - published on 09/25/16

The violinist who consistently brings in tens of millions of viewers covers Rihanna’s hit

We found love in a whole new place.

Lindsey Stirling is a contemporary violinist whose music videos of original pieces and contemporary covers consistently rack up tens of millions of views.

Her remake of Rihanna’s “We Found Love” was shot in beautiful Kenya and features Kenyan recording artist Alisha Popat along with an array of local dancers.

In the video you see her teaching the violin to one of the dancers. No one in the community had ever seen a violin before. “It was this awesome, surreal experience, connecting with these people who had never seen this instrument,” said Devin Graham, the man behind the music video.

“We found love in a whole new place,” reads the changed chorus line. Watch and enjoy the sights, sounds, and radiant joy of Kenya.
