Music: Radioactive-Indian version

This song is originally by American rock band Imagine Dragons. The band called V Minor covered this song using Indian musical instruments. V minor is a band based out of Calicut, Kerala (an Indian state in South India). Some of the guys from the band are in the first year of college and some are in schools. They cover songs of different bands and artists.

Indian Instruments used in this song are Harmonium, Tabla and Kartal.

Harmonium: The pump organ, reed organ, harmonium, or melodeon is a type of free-reed organ that generates sound as air flows past a vibrating piece of thin metal in a frame. The piece of metal is called a reed. Though the harmonium derived from the designs developed in France, it was developed further in India in unique ways like scale changing mechanism and Hand-pumping.

Tabla: The tabla is a South Asian membranophone percussion instrument consisting of a pair of drums, used in traditional, classical, popular and folk music. 

Kartal: A Kartal is a percussion instrument of India. And it is an ancient instrument used mainly in devotional and folk songs.

I not only liked the music they played, I liked the video too, they enjoy making music and watching that is lovely too. And yes we love our Indian music.

The original song is also good it is one of my favourites. Imagine dragons, they make good music.
