Jordan’s ancient stone-carved city of Petra and one of the Seven Wonders of the World has frequently appeared as the stunning backdrop in many Hollywood films, such as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and it has now appeared in Piano Guys’ latest music video.
The band has made a quest to play at each of the Seven Wonders of the World, including Petra. The video that was filmed in the historic city shows the unique red-colored canyons of Petra and its incredible stone treasury with a beautiful musical piece of the Indiana Jones theme song being played. It also shows the city’s vast hills and mountains along with its many ruins and it captures the beauty of Petra at night.
Additionally, the video shows scenes of Amman, Jordan’s capital city and displays the ancient Citadel, which is an archeological site located in Amman’s downtown area. Some of the Citadel's ruins date back to the Roman and Byzantine eras. The video also captures Amman’s traditional market and panoramic views of the city.
