A Lilting Cover of the Classic Elvis Presley Song ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’ Played on a Kalimba

While hanging out in his backyard with his beloved dog Maple, the very talented multi-instrumentalist AcousticTrench (previously) played a beautifully lilting cover of the classic Elvis Presley song “Can’t Help Falling in Love” on a 17-key kalimba (also known as a mbira or thumb piano).

The Kalimba sounds like a little music box and Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling In Love felt like a perfect fit for this instrument.

Trench also played a tinkly version of “La Vie en Rose” by Edith Piaf while Maple stood out in the snow.

Trench also covered the Blink 182 song “All the Small Things” while Maple played in the leaves.
