A clip of a woman playing a soothing tune on the violin has surfaced online and the Internet is lost in the melody. She was accompanied by what’s known as “chenda melam”, an orchestra with musicians playing percussion instruments at a temple festival in Kerala.
Shared on Twitter by a user named Sebi Matthew, the clip features a woman playing the violin in sync with the “chenda melam.”
Reportedly, the chenda-violin fusion was performed by the Aryakkara Brothers group during a temple festival in Kerala.
If you are a music lover, you will definitely hear it twice. The caption of the post was a red heart emoji and so was what the comments section was filled with.
