A musician recently attempted one of Irish rock band U2’s songs on his cello and the rendition is now making rounds on the internet, mesmerising many.
The viral video features Ireland-based Patrick Dexter playing a rendition of one of U2’s popular song, “Where the Streets Have No Name”. The song is from the bands’ 1987 album ‘The Joshua Tree’.
In the video, Dexter can be seen playing the instrument in a picturesque location while his dog Naoise enjoys the music in the background. The musician has also used looping techniques to build up the backing parts for the Irish rock song.
