For those of you, who think music without instruments is crime, think again. Though not as popular as other genres of music, a cappella is a rising trend. Here the artist/s sings songs without any accompanying music. They usually sing in a group so that there can be accompanying voices and echoes to go with the song. What started off as part of religion is now a slow rising trend in universities, TV shows and professions.
One such group of artists is known as The Pentatonix. A group of five vocalists who became prominent once they won the third season of The Sing-Off. The name Pentatonix refers to the pentatonic scale which has five notes per octave and hence referring to the five band members. The five members are Avi Kaplan, Scott Hoying, Kirstin Maldonado, Kevin Olusola, and Mitch Grassi.Now, if you have heard of this band then here are a few things that you would like to know about them.
