WATCH: Beethoven’s 7th symphony meets a Cuban rumba!

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 12/26/16 - updated on 06/07/17

Hard to believe that all the "instruments" used to create this piece come from the piano itself

Let them praise His name with dancing; Let them sing praises to Him with timbrel and lyre. (Psalm 149:3)

Need to work off some of those Christmas treats? Grab a partner and dance to this upbeat rendition of Beethoven’s 7th, Movement 2, performed in a Cuban Rumba style, with all instruments created by the piano itself.
