Watch Kwabs perform an orchestral live rendition of his standout single from last year "Last Stand."


As Okayplayer points out, Ghanaian-born Londoner Kwabs recently came through with a full band rendition of his SOHN-produced highlight track of last year "Last Stand."

"Last Stand" features on Kwabs' Wrong Or Right EP, out now on iTunes. Watch the live video below.
