May 6th, 2021

When we speak of violin, what comes to mind is classical music, orchestras, elegance, and romance.

And perhaps it’s true. The violin is regarded as one of the most important musical instruments in history, because of its fundamental role in an orchestra, or the spring of inspiration and different layers of emotion it conveys to its listeners upon hearing its powerfully romantic sound.

The violin, sometimes known as a fiddle, is a wooden chordophone. It is a bowed stringed musical instrument that evolved during the Renaissance. Violins are important instruments in a wide variety of musical genres. They are most prominent in the Western classical tradition, both in ensembles, from chamber music to orchestras, and as solo instruments. That is how versatile this little instrument is!

However, this kid proves you otherwise in her electrifying performance of an electro-pop smashing hit song featuring her violin.

A violin prodigy makes the crowd dance to her music with her rendition of Tones and I’s “Dance Monkey”.

Meet Karolina Protsenko, a talented violin virtuoso, which who, at such a young age, is making a name in the musical scene. And in a video uploaded in her YouTube account, she makes the crowd go wild as she performs a jaw-dropping violin cover of “Dance Monkey” in the busy streets of Santa Monica, California.

“Dance Monkey” is a furiously catchy song that has initially taken over Australian music charts before it broke more chart records across the globe. The singer of the song, whose original name is Toni Watson, is also a busker herself who started in Byron Bay, Australia in 2017. Tones and I wrote “Dance Monkey” while busking in Byron Bay, intending it to be a fun song for her fellow hostel-dwellers to dance to.

A huge crowd starts to gather around Karolina to see her unleash her talent and skills in violin.
