My Humps + New World Symphony Remix

By Maddy Shaw Roberts

Dvořák meets the Black Eyed Peas in a bizarre new arrangement, conducted (sort of) by Gustavo Dudamel.

Dvořák’s 1893 Symphony No. 9 in E minor ‘From the New World’ is one of the greatest triumphs of the Czech composer’s career.

It has been played in concert halls all over the world – and when Neil Armstrong landed on the Moon, he even brought a tape recording of the symphony for the journey (no jokes).

Basically, it’s his most popular symphony by a mile and it’s great – but we’re not sure he could have predicted this.

Tom Helps, a YouTuber who has also previously mixed Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake with Will Smith’s ‘Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It’, has mashed the symphony with the Black Eyed Peas’ controversial hit ‘My Humps’.

And it actually sort of… works?!
