Coronavirus pandemic has forced several countries to shut its international borders, offices, colleges, schools, and places of large gatherings to keep the spread of deadly disease in check.

While the worst impact of the COVID-19 outbreak is seen in China, the whole of Italy is under lockdown with the exception of food stores and pharmacies.

Confined to their homes, the locals found a unique way to keep their spirits high in order to fight COVID-19 - by jamming with one another, all from their balconies.

The folks could be heard singing “E mentre Siena dorme” (“And While Siena Sleeps”), a traditional folk song of Siena. Soon enough, the videos seeped into the desi Internet and they did what they do best-- mashup the video with desi songs.

Why you ask? Listen to the edited versions of the videos from Italy and you'll know exactly why.

Ghanan ghanan, Lagaan.

Of course, videshis too had viral mashups up their sleeves. Lady Gaga, Katy Perry no one was spared.



Meanwhile, here are the real, unedited videos of Italians battling the lockdown.




As of March 17, coronavirus has claimed 7174 lives worldwide with 2158 alone in Italy.
