Take Five - the Pakistani version

I really must congratulate this group of Pakistani musicians for having the ability to bring that jazz classic "Take Five" to another level. Dave Brubeck, who recorded this piece in 1961, must be real proud to see his work played in a predominantly Muslim country. Who says tabla, sitar and western music don't mix. How about Malaysia? Like to experiment it with the ghazal "guitar" and kompang drums? Who knows something innovative may yet come out of it.
