Is That Who We Think It Is?
We’ve heard a lot of covers over the years and some were fantastic, others not so much. However, the one you’re about to see is so good that when a co-worker played it out loud without showing us who was actually performing, we honestly believed it was Simon and Garfunkel – so imagine our surprise when we turned around and saw not Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, but father and son duo Johnny Nana and his son, Jaiwant!
These talented YouTubers took on Simon and Garfunkel’s iconic “Sound Of Silence” back in 2011, with Johnny pulling double duty on bass guitar and Art Garfunkel’s high vocals and Jaiwant on lead guitar. He takes on the role of Paul Simon with the lower harmony and y’all, from the slow, gentle way their voices rise and fall together to their natural bond between father and son, the Nanas’ take on “Sound Of Silence” is far and away one of the best covers we’ve ever heard.
Take it from us – this is one you don’t want to miss (and it’s a fun way to mess with your friends and family, too)!
