Watch Harvard drumming collective THUD perform Darude’s ‘Sandstorm’ using only Boomwhackers
Few songs can captivate almost 20 years after their original release, but Finnish producer Darude‘s “Sandstorm” will forever live in electronic music infamy, thanks to its infectious energy and iconic 16-note melody. Harvard’s resident drumming collective, THUD, has given the people what they want with a new rendition of the trance hit using none other than Boomwhackers as their instrument of choice. Although Boomwhackers are the unlikeliest of instrumental choices for the cover, they manage to capture the very essence of “Sandstorm.”
THUD has also utilized the plastic tubes for other hits, including Queen‘s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and the James Bond theme song. Given their expert remake of one electronic music’s classic hits, fans can only hope there will be more tracks like this in their pipeline.
