It’s been a rough end to 2015. But, as we’ve shared with you, in these difficult times, there have been incredible examples of fraternity, love, and solidarity across the world. In this spirit, Indian satellite company, Tata Sky, released a video of a traditional Islamic music ensemble playing several different Christmas carols (Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is the best!) on the sitaar and tabla.

On its YouTube page, the company described its motivation for making the video:

The world could really use some love and hope right now. And this video is just that – a message of hope. It’s a gentle reminder that, though all seems dark right now, there is light still left in this world. And it’s time we let it in.

As the video itself reminds us:

Don’t Lose Your Faith in Humanity Just Yet. Merry Christmas!
