Video: Spike Jonze Presents Yo-Yo Ma and Lil’ Buck


World-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma and street dancer Lil’ Buck make a beautiful blend of classical music and new school dance.

Yo-Yo Ma played an excerpt of “The Dying Swan” from Camille Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals and Lil’ Buck shared his own interpretation of the piece by dancing along. Apparently, this performance came about when a friend of Yo-Yo Ma saw Lil’ Buck’s YouTube videos and got the two of them together. Luckily, Spike Jonze was there to film the whole thing.

WARNING: Extreme dopeness will occur
