Siblings Put On Symphony-Level Concert In Living Room In Insane Home Video.

Some people are simply born to be musicians.

The seven Kanneh-Mason children of Nottingham, England, are among those rare souls who seem to have musical talent running through their veins like it’s their lifeblood. The family is an orchestra in and of themselves, each playing piano, violin, and/or cello to perfection.


The family is well known in Great Britain, especially after they made it to the semi-finals in the 2015 season of “Britain’s Got Talent.”

Sheku Kanneh-Mason royal wedding cello

Recently nineteen-year-old Sheku, a prizewinning cellist, made international headlines thanks to his solo performance in the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.


During the signing of the register, Sheku treated audiences both inside Kensington Palace and around the world, via satellite, to a gorgeous cello performance that had everyone feeling sentimental.

Meghan Markle herself had reached out to Sheku to invite him to play at their wedding, and the British teenager was quick to point out how excited and honored he was to be a part of this historic event.

While Sheku gives performances individually, he also still performs with his siblings at events around the United Kingdom. A video of the family playing the Hungarian dance song “Monti’s Czardas” shows how beautifully this talented family works together to make magical music together.


The family orchestra consists of Isata, the oldest sister, who specializes in piano. Isata was the first of the children to show an interest in music, and she was accepted into the junior program at the Royal Academy of Music in London when she was just eight years-old. The other siblings, Braimah, Sheku, Konya, Jeneba, Aminata, and Mariatu, have all followed in their big sister’s footsteps ever since.


In the rousing “Monti’s Czardas” video, we see Isata at the piano, Sheku and Jeneba on cello, and Braimah, Konya, and Aminata on violin. It’s incredible how just six instruments produce the sound of an entire orchestra!


Watch how their fingers fly over the strings so quickly! They’re practically a blur. How do they make it look so easy? They also look like they’re having a great time making music together, which is wonderful to see.

Currently Isata, Braimah, Sheku, and Konya are all studying at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music in London on full scholarships! We’re certain we’ll be seeing a lot more of the Kanneh-Mason family in the future, and their music is truly a joy and a blessing to us all.

Listen to the Kanneh-Mason clan’s thrilling rendition of “Monti’s Czardas” below, and don’t forget to share.
