Penn Masala

My desi-phile labmate pointed them out to me

Penn Masala, the world's first and premier Hindi a cappella group, was formed in 1996 by a group of students at the University of Pennsylvania.


A cappella (Italian: “at chapel” or Latin: "From the chapel/choir") music is vocal music or singing without instrumental accompaniment, or a piece intended to be performed in this way.

Check their music out, quite nice and this funny one too

They truly are unmissable. You have to get to one of their concerts if you liked that video.

I saw them a few years ago and was blown away.

Professor,
yeah, i thought that was funny. also the T.A. bit.

Prashant,
yeah. this you-tubed song is funny, but their music (pehchaan- that i heard on their site) is really nice too. i will keep an ear out for any upcoming concerts and go..
