Listen to the 'Game of Thrones' Theme in Gamelan and Filipino Folks Instruments

Cancel all of your plans for 2019.

Why? Because that's when the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is likely to air. Yep, that means we have over a year-long wait for new episodes. Or 2 years. 

The Dragons (including the icy one), the night king, Jon Snow (or let's start calling him Aegon Targaryen), and others will have to wait. No, they won't feel the bites, it's us who will suffer a lot. 

What should we do while waiting? 

Maybe this. Here's something to tide you over till the next season of Game of Thrones.

Kontra-GaPi (Kontemporaryong Gamelan Pilipino) of the Philippines used traditional folk instruments from Southeast Asia to make a cool rendition of the Game of Thrones theme.

The Gamelan, which features central in their ensemble, is a traditional Indonesian mallet instrument.

The group is the resident ethnic music and dance ensemble at the University of the Philippines in Diliman. They also used the kulibet, esmi, and solibaw for the cover.

It's a spoiler-free cultural cross-over that's certainly going to be one of the best covers you've ever heard.
