A Yemeni composer, known for turning popular western songs into Arabic remixes, has infused Hadhrami musical influence into the famous opening theme song of the Game of Thrones series.
The song, composed by Mohammed al-Ghoom, has so far garnered more than 270,000 views on YouTube since it was posted last week.
At the beginning of the video, the producers wrote an apology to HBO and the producers of Game of Thrones for “converting their series music from a serious (one) into a joyful” version.
“As Yemenis, we got tired of the conflict and pain so we need some joy and delight,” the message from al-Ghoom read.
