Radiohead’s “Creep” Played on the Gayageum, a Korean Instrument Dating Back to the 6th Century




Every now and then, we check in on the fascinating musical world of Luna Lee–a musician who performs Western music on the Gayageum, a traditional Korean stringed instrument which dates back to the 6th century. Over the years, we’ve shown you her adaptations of Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Voodoo Chile;’ David Bowie’s “The Man Who Sold The World;” Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah;” blues classics by John Lee Hooker, B.B. King & Muddy Waters; and Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb,” “Another Brick in the Wall” & “Great Gig in the Sky.” To keep the tradition going, today we bring you Luna’s beautiful take on Radiohead’s debut single, “Creep” (1992). For anyone who somehow missed the 90s, we’ve included the original Radiohead music video below. Enjoy both.
