Looking at the tones in that video, I think you may be better off using a set of Coral filters. They come in a range of strengths. If I remember correctly, a Coral 3 is roughly equivalent to an 85 filter, but with more of a pink tone.

I don't think they have used heavy chocolate filters, as the whites are still white, and the blues in the evening sky are still visible. A light Coral (1) combined with the musician's naturally dark skintones would get you close to this look. Obviously, a lot of it will also come down to your lighting, natural or artificial.
