I Have To Admit…

that every once in awhile I’m impressed with some of the music that NPR drags up for it’s quarter-to-the-hour cultural spotlights.

Take this report on a ccapella vocal group from the University Of Pennsylvania that mixes modern pop songs with hindi musical standards. It’s surprisingly good.

The interview is a little earnest, and the pop songs they use are a bit suspect, (The Police? Sting’s Desert Rose? Ugh.), but the idea holds up on its own and is pretty enertaining.

Collegiate accappella music covered by The Stranger? The mind boggles. I'm serious - boggles.
