Game of Thrones and its music have gotten plenty of covers, from violins and vocals to instrumentals from around the world, and at least one kooky Kanye mashup… but we haven’t seen as much dancing – until now. Dancers Geatali Tampy and Priya Lupita Shah teamed up to perform a haunting duet to “The Rains of Castamere” – you know, that murderous Lannister banger from the Red Wedding.
The video, filmed by Alvin Alex, opens on Shah and Tampy as sisters in the North (we’d recognize those cloaks anywhere), inseparable until Shah receives a mysterious scroll. Tampy goes snooping (classic Arya) and finds out that the Lannisters want one sister to betray the other.
The music comes in – not the original, but a fitting cover – and the duo perform a modern/contemporary duet that brings new meaning to the chilling song and leads to a finale fitting of Thrones. Can’t everyone in Westeros just get along?
Note: This writer is friends with both of the above dancers. Don’t be jealous.
