“Bollywood music has changed immensely over the decades. We’ve seen legendary singers redefine genres, musical directors pushing the envelope with their arrangements, and the arts and culture of India thrive. Penn Masala was created 18 years ago to celebrate the impact that Bollywood has had on our lives, and to pay tribute to some of the timeless classics that we, our parents, and grandparents love. We hope you like our Evolution of Bollywood Music! Thanks to Pentatonix for the awesome idea”!

 

Penn Masala have thanked another a cappella band Pentatonix  who did “Evolution Of Music” for the concept of doing the “Evolution Of Bollywood Music””

The band have performed with A.R. Rahman at the Indian American Achiever Awards, held at The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. Later, in the summer of 2012, the group, in partnership with Indian music channel 9XM released a video of its a cappella version of Rahman’s “Maa Tujhe Salaam” in honor of Indian Independence.
