This kid only needed one string to make Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' into a Punjabi masterpiece

More tumbi!

You probably thought that Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" couldn't get any more infectiously awesome than it already is.

Wrong.

All it needed was some tumbi, a single-stringed instrument from the Punjab region of North India. In the hands of a young man from Florida — who performs under the name Tumbibeatbreaker— the tumbi's signature pluck and twang turns "Get Lucky" into a Punjabi pop masterpiece. It's pretty short, but a full-length remix seems to be in the works.

Enjoy.

Somebody has got to get Tumbibeatbreaker in a room with this girl, who reinvented Rihanna's "Rude Boy" using a traditional Punjabi drum called a "dhol."

It's meant to be.
