Cornel Hrisca-Munn was born in 1991 in Romania with no forearms and a deformed right leg, into truly distressing conditions that the Telegraph details at some length. Despite this, Cornel has already made astonishing strides in his life, currently attending college at Oxford, where he’s played drums in the Jazz orchestra. In 2010, he told the Telegraph, “I don’t let my physical disability stand in my way,” he [said] firmly. “I always find solutions to what I cannot do. I’m a fighter.” Most recently, he has taken to YouTube, uploading videos of his drum covers, and I’ve got to say, he is a damn good drummer. The following video is a cover of the song, “The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie,” off the latest album “I’m With You” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
