uBass as a Percussion Instrument?

Who knew?

If you caught Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, you probably noticed that Bakithi Kumalo was playing the uBass as a percussion instrument, as well as a bass.

Check out this clip of Paul Simon and Kumalo performing Simon’s song “Rewrite” from his new album So Beautiful or So What.

Pretty cool. And pretty versatile.

Listen and enjoy.
