What would be the ultimate location for recording a soundtrack to a film? How about right underneath the H of the Hollywood sign? That is where KIN CAPA, an American multi-instrumentalist recorded a madly enchanting tune you're about to hear.

Picturing the artist playing this charmer of a tune underneath a sign that in a lot of ways represents capitalism and an industry that is notorious for all kinds of misdeeds - the music becomes ever more liberating and carefree.
