The Piano Guys, a phenomenal LDS musical group with over 1 billion views on YouTube, have released their latest music video. Combining music from the score of “Indian Jones and the Last Crusade” with the classical arrangement of “Scheherazade” by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, the video was shot in Petra, Jordan.
“Three years ago we embarked on an insane archeological quest: To conquer all Seven Wonders of the World,” the group writes. “With music.”
They have since filmed beautiful videos all around the world, including the Great Wall of China, the Christ Redeemer Statue in Rio, Brazil, and most recently Chichén Itzá. The locations are based on a new list from 2007.
They explain the wonder of Petra for those who don’t know:
“Just to give you an idea of its scope, Petra is home to over 800 monuments, buildings, halls, tombs, temples, and gateways sculpted from kaleidoscope sandstone. Its access is guarded by a narrow, protracted 1,000 ft high (300 meter) canyon. The remote desert city thrived in its prime because of an intricate, ingenious aqueduct system that carried water over great distances to store in cisterns. Arab tradition believes that Petra was the site where Moses of the Old Testament struck the rock to draw forth water.”

The single, officially entitled “Indian Jones and the Arabian Nights,” is available on The Piano Guys’ new CD, “Uncharted.” Released last week, you can learn more about the album here.
