Rondò Veneziano "La Serenissima"

I absolutely love this little tune (and music video) from Rondò Veneziano.  They're an Italian chamber orchestra that play Baroque-period music, but fuse traditional instruments with synthesizers, bass guitar and drums. 

This song, "La Serenissima", was released as a single in 1983, but was later featured on an album compiled by the "Venice in Peril" Fund (a charity established to protect art and architecture in Venice against rising sea levels).  I'm assuming this is why the surreal music video features robots being submerged by water. 

Whatever the reason - it's unique and cool... and pre- Daft Punk!  Enjoy.
