World Science Festival: Bobby McFerrin & Pentatonic Scales

I'm sure everybody's heard the song "Don't Worry, Be Happy" by Bobby McFerrin.

It's infectious, light-hearted and carefree :) The entire song is actually done in its entirety by Bobby's voice- using his own voice, he layered over to create the various effects.

In the following clip, he shows how science and art are not that seperate after all.
