The Piano Guys Conquer Another Wonder Of The World - New Music Video "Jungle Book/Sarabande" Filmed in Chichén Itzá

A Mashup Featuring Songs from the Disney Film, Jungle Book and Classical Composer Handel

Audio Track Now Available via All Digital Service Providers

On Tour Now

NEW YORK, May 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Musical Internet sensation, The Piano Guys, continue their quest to serenade all Seven Wonders of the World. For their third Wonder, Utah's favorite dads, turn their attention to Chichén Itzá, where they filmed their latest self-made music video, "Jungle Book / Sarabande (Mayan style)." Check out the video here. The audio version is also available for purchase at all digital service providers.

Having already conquered two other Wonders, Christ The Redeemer in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil and the Great Wall of China, The Piano Guys filmed this epic video in the Mexican jungle and at the iconic step pyramid "El Castillo" in Chichén Itzá. Located on the Yucatán Peninsula, Chichén Itzá was one of the largest Mayan cities in Mexico from 600 A.D. to the 1200s, and today is known for its spectacular historic ruins.

On their musical journey for this Wonder, The Piano Guys wanted to stay true to their tradition of mixing classical music with film scores, plus also honor the Mayan heritage, as they love infusing local and historical culture into their arrangements. In classic TPG style, they came up with the unique musical theme of "jungle harmony" and combined the songs "Bear Necessities" and "My Own Home" from Jungle Book with the classical piece "Sarabande" by George Frideric Handel. Additionally, they were inspired to incorporate instrumental music from The Mayans, so the actual Mayan percussion patterns and authentic Mayan wind instruments can be heard on track - listen closely!

The Piano Guys - Steven Sharp Nelson, Jon Schmidt, Al Van der Beek and Paul Anderson - became an online sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos, which have surpassed 900 million views and garnered nearly 4.7 million subscribers on YouTube. They've made over 50 music videos since 2011, including their breakout hit, an innovative multi-handed version of One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" and a gorgeous reinvention of the hit song "Let It Go" from Disney's Frozen. To date, the Utah-based classical-pop group have released five major label albums on Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks: Wonders,The Piano Guys,The Piano Guys 2, a holiday album called A Family Christmas, and most recently The Piano Guys - Live!featuring live music from their sold out Red Rocks and Carnegie Hall concerts.
