An Abridged History of Western Music: “What a Wonderful World” Sung in 16 Different Styles

Joe Sabia, Michael Thurber and Matt McCorkle teamed up to form cdza, a group dedicated to creating “musical video experiments.” They started with a History Of Lyrics That Aren’t Lyrics and A History of Whistling. Now, nine months into their project, they’re up to their Opus No. 7 – An Abridged History of Western Music in 16 Genres. In a fun three minutes, they tease apart Louis Armstrong’s chestnut, What a Wonderful World, presenting it in various Western styles of music. Gregorian Chant. Baroque. Bluegrass. Reggae. Rap. Punk. The list goes on. Enjoy.
