A Haunting Acoustic Cover of the ‘Interstellar’ Theme Beautifully Performed on a Traditional Oud

In response to a request from his fans, musician Ahmed Alshaiba performed a haunting acoustic cover of the Hans Zimmer theme from the film Interstellar with a combination of piano, drum and a traditional Oud, which he played beautifully. Alshaiba remarked that the song was a bit scary at first.

This song has been requested many times, I was intimidated by this song for some time, it’s not an easy song to play on an acoustic instrument, I hope I did it justice.

You certainly did sir.
