VIDEO: ‘Despacito’ Finally Gets the Oriental Tabla Twist It Deserves

Everyone has been obsessed with Spanish hit “Despacito” by Puerto Rican pop artist Luis Fonsi, featuring rapper Daddy Yankee.


People either can’t get enough of it or absolutely hate it, there is no in between. We’ve heard many remixes by Spanish deckslayers, and we’ve definitely heard Justin Bieber’s version — let’s not forget about that one hilarious time when the Biebz completely forgot the lyrics.


Today, however, we found the tune that will speak to us Middle Easterners and Arabs, especially with summer parties around the corner. Egyptian Facebook user Abdallah Abdellatif posted a video of an oriental tabla/Despacito jam, and we love it. This is perfect for Sahel parties, weddings and bachelorette parties.
