An Animal Crossing: New Horizons theme song performance

Who creates the music in your favorite video games? In the case of Nintendo’s popular Animal Crossing: New Horizons game, it’s the five musicians featured in the video above. Their virtual performances were filmed individually, and were then edited together to complete the catchy theme song.

The musicians: Eric Miyashiro on flugelhorn, Tetsuro Toyama on both the acoustic guitar and the ukulele, Takashi Ebinuma on double bass, Saburo Tanooka on accordion, and Mataro plays the bongos and other percussion instruments.
