Music Genres / Songs Through the Ages

[one_half]Found this great acapella mix from Pentatonix on YouTube where this cool group of talented folk blend some classic classics to today’s hits (and every genre in between)!

Whether is Classical music or religious chanting, 60’s beat or the popular GaGa they pretty much nail it, most inspiring to me are the transitions between rhythms, not easy as you music folks out there know! Check ’em out on itunes.[/one_half][one_half_last]
