The recorder is a musical instrument most commonly seen as a “child’s instrument” these days, probably because it’s often used to teach music at elementary school. I remember as a kid in school playing it in class, along with all the other kids. What a noisy racket we made as we tried to blow the appropriate notes!
Now meet Medhat Mamdouh. He’s going to make you totally rethink the music that can be made with the recorder. The 20-something hip hop and dubstep recorder player hails from Cairo, Egypt.
In the video below, his tune starts simply enough, but 10 seconds in? I was completely amazed.
