Mahakarya Studios (mahakarya means “Masterpiece” in Malay) is a group of artists from a variety of disciplines who have all come together in the name of creating great art. For this musical arrangement, they have assembled musicians playing traditional Malay instruments to produce this Game of Thrones medley piece, and the theme to the HBO television series from the books by George R. R. Martin has never sounded so majestic.

Pairing the classical violin and cello with traditional Malay musical instruments like gambus, gendang and seruling, the group created a hauntingly beautiful rendition Ramin Djawadi’s House Greyjoy, House Stark and the opening theme of Game of Thrones.

Turn off the Krypton Radio music stream using the controller at the upper right before watching the video. Prepare to be entranced.

As the world’s oldest and most influential geek culture radio station, the responsibility befalls us to bring noteworthy geeky excellence to the fore. This piece is one such note of excellence.

As fans of Game of Thrones, we bend the knee.
