Video of the Day: Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra Performs Fantastic Renditions of Classic Hip-Hop Tracks


Polish orchestra conductor Radzimir Debski, also known as JIMEK, wins the award for best encore ever. This is the best video on the entire Internet today as far as I’m concerned.

Debski and the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra perform a 30-song medley of hip-hop classics (and one original piece) as an encore following concerts at the Polish Nation Radio Orchestra Concert Hall in Katowice, Poland. I love that this is edited together using mostly footage shot by fans in the audience.

Jay Dee / 40-Piece Orchestra

AWESOME. A 40-piece orchestra interpreting the music of the late great Jay-Dee. Arrangements by Miguel Atwood Ferguson. Lots of cameos throughout – here’s Pos and Talib doin Stakes is High and then the show closing with Illa J (Dilla’s little brother) singing over Fall in Love (footage courtesy of DERT).

There was a film crew there and it looks like it will be released as a DVD! It will be a must-have (at least for me). Thanks to YesYesYall for the heads up!
