S'porean guy creates a medley of popular CNY songs with 8 instruments

SINGAPORE - Playing one instrument requires talent, but this Stomp contributor proves he is multi-talented by playing eight in this Chinese New Year medley, just in time for the festivities.

Nelson Tan, a 24-year-old Singaporean student studying at NTU's School of Art, Design and Media, pieced together an amazing combination of music, entertainment and tradition.

In his 2-minute Youtube video, he plays the most popular Chinese New Year songs with the harmonica, piano keyboard, bass machine, drum set, violin, Chinese instruments dizi and erhu, and even an adorable-looking Otamatone.

Stomp contributor Nelson wrote:

"I am inspired to create this medley as I listened to many CNY songs.

"I really hope to create one video with the familiar tunes!"
