Watch: Musician Plays Game of Thrones Theme Song on Indian Drums


Dedicated “Game of Thrones” fans have recorded themselves playing the show’s theme music on an accordion and a Hungarian dulcimer and have even mixed a six-minute long dance track.
A new version by a Mumbai-based musician playing traditional Indian drums has become an online hit. One man drum circle Karan Chitra Deshmukh performed the piece using 10 tablas–and a banjo–in a video posted to YouTube and on his Facebook page.
“All you Game of Thrones fans!!!! Here’s a treat for you,” Mr. Deshmukh said on Facebook.
The now-iconic theme song tugs at the heartstrings of the show’s fans, who watch each episode, eager to see which of their favorite characters writer George R. R. Martin will kill off next.
Mr. Deshmukh’s impressive tabla solo is one of a number that put an original spin on the tune composed by Ramin Djawadi, who also wrote the themes for the Iron Man movie and Batman Begins.
Last year, Dutch DJ Armin Van Buuren released a 6 minute 46 second dance remix of the minute-and-a-half long song.

Game of Thrones season 6 episode 5 title leaks - what does 'The Door' mean?


Since season six of Game of Thrones premiered the titles of episode two, three and four have all hit the internet, through both official confirmation and leaks.
Now, thanks to HBO Asia, we have the ominous title of episode five: 'The Door'. There's yet to be any confirmation from HBO US or UK.
Now, episode four’s title is ‘Book of the Stranger’, which has a little bit more meaning and history to it, while 'The Door' could mean almost anything.
Let’s quickly think of some famous doors from Game of Thrones. There’s the Moon Door at The Eyrie: that hole Littlefinger pushed Lysa Tully down in season four. 
With there currently being little reason for any of the main characters to go back to the Eyrie within the next few episodes, this is unlikely to be what the title refers to (unless Sansa decides to head back, something she probably will not do).
There’s also the prominent door to The House of Black and White which Arya waits outside. Could she be kicked out for not training hard enough? 
Is this door a metaphorical door one of our characters will walk through? A door into the afterlife, perhaps? A door back into real life (Jon Snow)?
