One of the many things to love about the Irish (aside from their region’s amazing landscapes), is that they’re proud of their heritage. Still visible through their holidays, celebrations, and practices, the Irish’s culture is pretty much still kept alive. So much so that even when doing a Despacito song cover, there’s still a touch of unique “Irish-ness” there.
Despacito, aka the song of the summer, is originally a Spansish song by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, then remixed featuring Justin Bieber. But now, hey, a Gaelic version just joined the Despacito party.
Performed by students at Irish language school Coláiste Lurgan in Ireland, the cover features Irish dancing, and hints of the Irish tin whistle in the melody. Watch the performance here:
