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


Award-winning cellist Yo-Yo Ma and LA street dancer Lil’ Buck recently put on a miraculous performance together at an event supporting arts education. 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. Click through for an amazing collaboration between old style and new style that creates something wholly original and beautiful.
