Lucas Imbiriba is a Brazilian guitarist and songwriter who is known for his lush arrangements of both rock tunes and classical pieces. His cover of “Bohemian Rhapsody” has turned many heads, topping half a million views in a couple weeks, and for good reason.
He starts off subtly with a delicate and understated intro. Then the arrangement begins to unfold and bloom. His dynamic range is like the ocean, unexpectedly ebbing and flowing in the most natural of ways. Between the stunning (impeccable) harmonics and the number of moving lines this artist is able to hold down, we are all gobsmacked.
It’s hard to get “Bohemian Rhapsody” covers to go viral, given the fact that there are so many of them around. But this version by Imbiriba is truly breathtaking. Play this cover for your sweetheart during a romantic dinner, because this man’s music is picturesque and amorous.
