Song on iTunes:

Martin Herzbergs new Single "Dragostea Din Tei" covered for Solo Piano.

Here's the Story:
In 2004 the song "Dragostea Din Tei" by the Moldavan Pop Band O-Zone became a huge hit all across Europe. It was covered hundereds of times and some versions were realeased simultaneously to the original (See Haiducii) That's why lots of fans didn't even know who wrote that heavy colored pop track in the first place. The americans instead, didn't recognized this song until it became famous by a youtube user who shot a video of himself trying to lip sync to to it, calling it the song by the name "Numa Numa" as he didn't know its original titel. In result, the song blew up in the states and became a hit. Even Rihanna and T.I. picked it up, using the hook melody in the song "Live your Life". The Song is also known for by the name: Ma Ya Hi

So when I accidentely stumbled across this song in 2009 again, I tried to play the chords on piano, just for fun. But the simplicity of chords and melody instantly changed my view on it as it suddenly sounded kind of classy and deep. I knew I had to make a New Age Piano Cover of it. After a year, I was finally happy with the outcome of my version. So here you go and hear for yourself what one of the most covered Pop-Hits sounds like, when it played on Piano...

P.S.: this song is dedicated to a really good friend of mine, who passed away in december 2010. He was a great musician, true friend and an outstanding role model. "jamie, your music lives on - lets meet in the great beyond"!
