The group was found by Tushar Lall who says, unlike other covers, Hey Jude has a sharp throwback feel. The latest cover is very different from their usual work as they are trying to explore a newer audience base with songs that are popular among a wider variety of people. His work is aimed at convincing people that classical music can be anything one wants and still sound good. He usually collaborates with different musicians for each of his projects. He says that for this particular video the musicians were chosen on the basis of their instrumental expertise who could put the perfect desi spin on Hey Jude. The music is recorded on instruments including sitar, tabla, sarangi, guitars, and drums.

“Tushar is attempting to knit classical Indian tones into the script of western music to showcase the beauty of Indian Music. It is one of a kind concept where a fusion of Indo-western styles of music produces a concoction which is deeply emotive as well as thought-provoking showing that music transcends boundaries and has no language.”
