The Piano Guys play Chopin on Great Wall of China

Kung Fu Piano: Cello Ascends is an arrangement of Oogway Ascends from Kung Fu Panda, reworked with Chopin's Prelude No. 20 - with a video recorded on the iconic Wonder of the World.
Using only a piano, cello, and asian percussion instruments including the Erhu and Guqin, The Piano Guys have revealed their latest Chopin-inspired track.
Once they were granted a permit to film on the Great Wall, they had to decide on which music to record. As well as including the classical influence, they wanted to include music from Kung Fu Panda, and a musical 'Kung Fu battle' section in the middle.
They said: "Since ThePianoGuys began, it has been our impossible dream to put a grand piano on the Great Wall. People laughed at us when we said we were determined to do it. It is done."
Now they've successfully captured the atmosphere of the Great Wall, the Piano Guys' new dream is to play music on all seven wonders of the world. Can we put in a bid for Stonehenge next, please?
