A one-man band, whose identity or origin is sadly still unconfirmed, has achieved a sort of celebrity status on social media. But, some users claim to have found who the man is.
Chairman of Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra, first shared his video in a tweet. Mahindra wrote that the video was from his “WhatsApp Wonderbox”. This was then retweeted by actor Farhan Akhtar, and since the man has become the new star of internet.
#whatsappwonderbox The friend who posted this wasn’t sure where this rather resourceful one-man-band was from. He suspects somewhere in the NorthEast. Anyone know him? I’d like to give him an award for innovation or musical talent—haven’t quite decided which one yet! pic.twitter.com/MHA3DqXQZf

Although, as we mentioned, there is no official detail about who the man is, but a Twitter user claims he is an artist from Thailand and his name is Sompong Uma.

We see the man playing a guitar, a mouth organ and drums, simultaneously, along with a touch of his lovely vocals. If you look closely, the man has strapped all these instruments to his back, and he moves his leg in a certain manner for a particular instrument to play. For example, he moves his left leg far apart to hit the Cymbal. Incredible!
Mahindra, Akhtar and I aren’t the only ones awed by the man. See how amazed the social media is.
More than skill he is displaying enormous right brain-left brain balance. Its difficult to do rhythm, percussion and melody at the same time. Unusual thinking skills.
