Berklee Indian Ensemble: 5 Peace Band

I’ve watched this video more times than I can count (and I’m still watching).

The Berklee Indian Ensemble, with Guy Bernfeld on bass, performed “5 Peace Band,” and they absolutely nailed it.

“The Berklee Indian Ensemble is delighted to present ‘5 Peace Band’ featuring renowned Indian composer and vocalist, Shankar Mahadevan,” the video description reads. “Composed by John McLaughlin, ‘5 Peace Band’ was most notably performed by ‘Remember Shakti’, the reformation of 1970s indo-jazz fusion group, ‘Shakti’. Led by John McLaughlin (guitar) and Zakir Hussain (tabla), ‘Remember Shakti’ included U. Shrinivas (mandolin), Shankar Mahadevan (vocals), and V. Selvaganesh (kanjira, ghatam, mridangam).”

Mind blown.
