The mystery that baffled locals in Southern California for days has been solved - the piano which strangely appeared on top of a mountain was the setting for a music video.

Hikers discovered the instrument on a graffiti-scrawled concrete slab at Topanga Lookout.

The scene has now turned out to have been created for a music video by Seattle-based artist Rachel Wong.

The cinematographer, Michael Flotron, said he and four others used a rope to haul the 350lb instrument a mile up the trail on Tuesday.

But after the film shoot, it was too dark to get the piano back down.

Mr Flotron says people seem happy to leave it there, but if necessary he will haul the piano back down.

The instrument is now becoming a sightseeing favourite for tourists.

In 2012, Rachel beat over 3,000 bands in the US to secure her top 12 finalist spot forFord’s Gimme the Gig II Contest.

As part of the contest, she showcased her original music in front of Grammy-awardwinning producer Don Was and renowned sound engineer Krish Sharma for a KTLA Television feature.

With two albums out, Rachel is working on her new EP, Getting There.
