GOT gets a desi makeover

Wednesday 15th June 2016 06:43 EDT

We all agree Ramin Djawadi did an excellent job composing music for the American hit television series 'Game of Thrones'. With the rising popularity of the fictional series composers around the world have tried their hand at the theme song, altering it to their best possible versions. We have all heard Coldplay's version, the Metal take on the theme song, the Cello cover, and also the one played by the Queen's guards (YES!).

India too tried its hands and there are several desi versions of the masterpiece. The latest one however hit all the right chords as Dubai-based Mahesh Raghavan gave our beloved 'GOT' the perfect Indian tadka. Trained in Carnatic and Hindustani music, Raghavan gave the theme song a strong Indian makeover, featuring Jon Snow as Jonachandra Snownaswami. The video that was uploaded on May 16, has already gone viral on the world wide web, with over 125,000 views and 2000 shares.

This isn't the first time Raghavan produced a classical version of a western song. He has made a cover of popular artist Adele's 'Hello', turning her into Adeleshwari.
