Utah's favorite dads, The Piano Guys, just released their latest self-made music video "Don't You Worry Child (Khushnuma)" featuring Indian vocalist Shweta Subram.

Filmed in "Little Sahara," a desert sand dune in central Utah known for its soft white sand and a beautiful Indian temple, this new video tells the story of two different worlds.

In writing the music for the song, The Piano Guys studied traditional Indian instruments. "We worked at recreating qualities of the pungi flute, the pitched tabla drum, and the sitar with steel, wood, carbon fiber, and electric cellos," says Steven Sharp Nelson in a press release. "We added piano licks that were inspired by both the traditional Indian scale and the Western Classical style – blending the two, as we like to do in our music. Shweta's vocals completed the song, giving the whole arrangement an authenticity and refined beauty." The Piano Guys started making music videos together for fun and their "hobby" turned into a worldwide phenomenon when their self-made YouTube videos amassed over 252 million views to date.
