Kung Fu Panda - Oogway Ascends (Erhu & Keyboard Cover)


It's been around two and a half years since I last did covers with erhu, and all my erhu covers involve clones of myself because I have to be my own instrumental accompaniment.

If you've seen one of The Piano Guys' covers, Kung Fu Piano: Cello Ascends, well that's the cover I did, based on the the original arrangement and key of the original soundtrack from Kung Fu Panda, and it's named Oogway Ascends.

I actually recorded this cover before PSY - Daddy in December 2015. I've been wanting to do this for quite long owing to the similarity and suitability in terms of instrumental arrangement that I could come out with.

It took me so long to edit because I was busy editing the other cover and minding my own stuffs as well. While attempting to upload it to YouTube before 2015 ended, I failed, and you know what, a few days after the end of 2015, I learnt that Kung Fu Panda 3 is gonna be screened soon, such a coincidence, like some blessings in disguise where I can align my sharing of this cover with the anticipation of the movie release. :)

I hope you enjoy this cover, I had like 14 retakes for the erhu part.
