Life in quarantine is no easy task, especially when we're not able to socialise with friends and family the way we normally do. Now more than ever, we all need a little positivity to brighten up our days. While some people have used their time at home to create funny yet topical quarantine memes, we find it's the catchy songs that make living in the time of Covid-19 coronavirus a bit more bearable.
Eishin, a Buddhist Monk in Akita prefecture, has jumped on the music bandwagon, blessing us with his take on Bob Marley’s ‘Three Little Birds’. He films himself in six different positions – playing a guitar along with some traditional musical instruments and Buddhist prayer tools from the temple – and combines them together to create the perfect cover version of this uplifting '70s hit. The one-minute clip has since garnered 1.54 million views (and counting) on Twitter.
Eishin wants us to keep calm, because just like the lyrics say, 'every little thing gonna be all right' – as long as we stay positive. And, of course, be sure to stay home.
