Game of Thrones: TIJP

When I was in school, I had to choose any of one of the cultural activities from Violin, Harmonium, Flute, Vocals, Drawing, Tabla and Mridangam. The classes were two times a week for about 45 mins. I wasn’t interested to sing and didn’t want to scare away people. I was also not into drawing as an art (As an after thought, I should have taken this course. At least, I would scored more in my biology diagrams). Among the others, the easiest to carry around was a Flute and I chose to learn flute. The classes didn’t last long. I learnt very basic Carnatic notes using Bansuri flute and I don’t remember any of that now. I hadn’t realized the beauty of the instrument at that time. I did not know at that time that it could produce soothing, soul stirring music and place you in a state of trance.

I had already posted about The Indian Jam Project earlier. They rearrange a famous theme music and present an Indian classical version of it. My favourite among their works in undoubtedly the Interstellar Tribute that I had shared earlier. But the first video of them that I stumbled upon was their Game of Thrones theme. I heard it again today for umpteenth number of time. It never gets boring. Whenever I hear the flautist Prathamesh play the instrument, I invariably end up cursing myself for quitting to learn this beautiful instrument.  The video of the Game of Thrones theme is embedded below. Do listen to their other themes. I would recommend Interstellar tribute and Harry Potter theme.

On a lighter note, if you are unable to relate this version of the theme with the series, Vishal Dutt’s image below might help you put things in perspective.  Cheers!

  1. Thank you for sharing! I’ve never heard of the Indian Jam Project, but it’s so beautiful. I feel the same way about playing piano – I stopped playing a few years ago, and am trying to pick it up again!

  2. Absolutely. This would have added charm to the already charming Lord Krishna. Thank you for comment.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am eagerly waiting for their next work. Wonderful arrangement. Good that you are trying to pick up Piano again. I feel everyone should learn at least one instrument of their choice. For “me” time atleast. 🙂
