Metropol Orkest: Utrecht, Holland

Just stumbled across this! It's a Portuguese blog post, written about a Dutch orchestra that's playing a certain Swahili song written by a Chinese-American composer (me).

I really have no idea what it's saying, but I believe it's a performance by the Metropol Orchestra of Utrecht, Holland, and I believe they recently did a concert of video game music where Baba Yetu was the encore. This was reported to me by a friend who happened to be there, but until I stumbled across this blog post, I never knew footage of the concert existed.

I must say, it's pretty rockin'. The drum kit is a great addition. Between this rendition, and the slow gospel version done by the Angel City Chorale, I'm beginning to think that there's a lot more classical crossover/popera/fusion potential for the song that I'm not realizing.
