Watch Soprano: India Carney, Alto: Erin Bentlage, Tenor: Nathan Heldman, Baritone: Ben McLain, Bass: Tracy Robertson & Vocal Percussion: Charlie Arthur Perform Snarky Puppy's "Shofukan" Completely A Cappella.

It takes a certain level of mastery to play the music of Snarky Puppy, as the unique jazz/funk collective flows through ornate compositions with panache. To totally re-interpret that music, however, is on a level of its own. That's what this A cappella group did, as part of their unique "Adapted for Six Voices" series. The sextet tackled Puppy's famed song "Shofukan" with a twist, abandoning all instruments for a vocal-only rendition.
