Flight of the Bumblebee, Played on an Accordion and a Banjo

Flight of the Bumblebee on a chromatic button accordion: YouTube Link

Previously, Neatorama reader Minnesotastan pointed out an amazing performance of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor as played on an accordion by YouTube user AccCam.

Though that was fantastic, Neatoramanaut Frau told us of one even better: Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumblebee played on the chromatic button accordion by Alexander Dmitriev. Look at his fingers fly!

And while we're at it, here's Flight of the Bumblebee as played on a banjo by Ken Aoki:

The accordion was too muddy. The Toccata was way better on accordion.

I loved the banjo one.

Alwaysthere, is that 320 Bumblebees Per Minute?

I love and fully endorse these talented Borats playing well-known songs on the accordion and whatnot. For those who live in Mars and therefore have not watched it on Youtube yet, I recommend searching for Los Colorados playing "Hot'n'Cold".

What? Two whole accordion posts in how many months?
I guess I should resume my search for bacon and zombie related posts. :P

@ Minnesotastan - the tuba one is great.
