How cool is this Jimi Hendrix 'Voodoo Child' cover done with a traditional Korean instrument?
Luna Lee likes to do covers of classic rock 'n' roll and we have to say this is pretty amazing!
The gayageum or kayagum is a traditional Korean zither-like string instrument with 12 strings, though some more recent variants have 21 or other numbers of strings. It is probably the best known traditional Korean musical instrument.
From Luna Lee:

The gayageum has a beautiful sound and amazing potential so I wanted to share my music with many people. I've been on YouTube creating music videos for the internet since 2009.
