US-based Penn Masala calls itself the " world’s first and premier South Asian a cappella group" that was formed in 1996 at the University of Pennsylvania. They have recently come out with their eighth studio album, Kaavish. This is how they describe the above video:

Bollywood music has changed immensely over the decades. We've seen legendary singers redefine genres, musical directors pushing the envelope with their arrangements, and the arts and culture of India thrive. Penn Masala was created 18 years ago to celebrate the impact that Bollywood has had on our lives, and to pay tribute to some of the timeless classics that we, our parents, and grandparents love...

We created this song and music video over the span of multiple months, carefully picking and choosing pieces that were not only popular but defining of their respective genres/decades. Because of the nature of such a piece, we had to make some decisions to shorten and/or lengthen certain decades in order to fit musically. This is why certain songs are out of order in the timeline, and why the number indication may not be accurate to the specific song playing. We do hope that you enjoy the 'Evolution of Bollywood Music' regardless.
