From The Straits Times:

Many people can play one instrument. Some even two. But eight?

In a YouTube video, Singaporean Nelson Tan created a medley of popular Chinese New Year music, played on eight different instruments: the erhu, the violin, the dizi, the drums, a piano keyboard, the harmonica, a bass machine, and the otamatone – that cute thing that looks like a black fish plushie.
