Talented Twins Cover Rihanna, ‘Zelda’ Theme and More on Harp
A pair of harp-playing twins have taken one of the most beautiful songs in video game soundtrack history and turned into something, um, beautiful-er.
Camille and Kennerly Kitt, also known as the “Harp Twins,” plucked out the ‘Ballad of the Goddess’ on a pair of angelic instruments and posted it to YouTube where it quickly went viral. The song serves as the main theme for the Nintendo Wii game ‘The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.’
And just to set the mood, they both donned their Renaissance faire princess get-ups and staged their rendition in what appears to be the ancient ruins of some kind of fallen kingdom.
These ladies have some serious talent. Their YouTube page is full of great harp covers of classic songs and they cover just about every musical genre. Country music fans will enjoy their cover of Johnny Cash’s ultra creepy ‘Ghost Riders in the Sky,’ which somehow becomes even creepier on a harp.
Pop music fans will get a kick out of their cover of Rihanna’s ‘Disturbia,’ complete with the screeching opening tones.
And, of course, no cover band is worth their weight in salt if they can’t pound out a good rendition of Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway to Heaven.’
