Some covers of a song are so well done, that you won’t miss much if you never hear the original. Well…

Leonard Cohen wrote a song in 1984 about many things shared by humans, including the state of a world that refuses to reconcile. The cracks webbing out from Cohen’s words are reaching us today.

The Native American pan flute represents calm and tranquility. So much so that a song lamenting a lack of peace sounds pleasant. A song about a lack of reconciliation has the effect of uniting the audience.

In this video, two brothers expertly cover Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’. You may find yourself listening to the tune as if for the first time.

Before and after the song, the brothers briefly communicate with their viewers in two languages. Despite the world’s determination to be divided, to be gulfs apart and isolated, the manner of these performers makes you feel like you’re part of something whole.

‘Hallelujah’ may still be an accurate portrait of the human struggle with reconciliation, but the way this cover is performed builds bridges between the listeners.
