Guitarist Adds Heavy Metal Soundtrack to Indian Percussive Singing

Musician Andre Antunes added a heavy metal guitar soundtrack to a 2018 video of Indian vocalists BR Somashekar Jois and Kumari V Shivapriya as they performed a form of percussive singing known as Konnakkol. Antunes compared his remix to the extreme metal stylings of the Swedish band Meshuggah.

If Meshuggah were from India.

Here’s the original “Konnakkol Duet”.
