mael durand : Here is the future!! mixing cultures to build great creative peace of art!!! (instead of creating wars and fights!!..)

indysk8r32 : Probably still one of my favorite things to ever grace the Internet. True beauty.

Barry Holdsworth : Amazing balance. This guy must have a very strong core . Stunning. Thank for sharing this art.

Tiyon Tran Duy : So good to see different sorts of music and dance mixed like that with respect and real love... J'ADORE !!! Kisses from Paris, France <3

JeanMopis : So, Yo-Yo Ma plays, Lil Buck dances his ass of and there is only a "toaster" to film it? ^^

ALLISON TURNER : Amazing --- and strong, strong ankles for those turns en pointe!

Latarius Ross : There can be beauty in the world even when total opposites collide. This brought tears to my eyes.

Prince Hal : Any performance art taken to the highest level takes commitment and dedication -- and while jookin may generally not be considered "high art" -- what Lil Buck has done with his version of jookin is the highest form of dance.  What he has been able to command his body to do through years of practice are as beautiful and awe-inspiring as Baryshnikov.  I think Baryshnikov would agree.  Check out Rag and Bone's new ad film featuring Lil Buck and Baryshnikov.  It's on youtube.

Aaron Cobb : To this day this is one of the most haunting, elegant, beautiful pieces of emotionally-connected art I have ever seen.

Sara Altuna : Extraordinary performance by both unlimitedly talented artists. I find Lil Buck's dance hypnotizing, and Yo-Yo Ma, as the flawless master that he always is, manages to perform Saint-Saëns "Swan" (From "Carnaval des animaux") without looking once at his left hand, which knows every note's perfect position on the cello strings. Trully remarkable, this is. Thank you so much for uploading it.

Elaine Marie : Bravo! What a surprise... I love the juxtaposition of the performing arts here, especially with such stellar artists. Kind of like street ballet.

Richard Deschenes : A Mastery of movement seldom seen accompanied by a magnificent Cellist ... Absolutely spectacular!

Elaine Waller-Rose : Yo-Yo-Ma's new documentary, "The Music of Strangers" brought me here. He and Lil' Buck perform this at the end. Buck is phenomenal and Mr. Ma is one of the best musicians (of any genre) and a man with great heart and soul. The doc is about his putting together the Silk Road Ensemble and the amazing musicians in it. Must be seen.

xJaysrox : Hahaha it's like high class entertainment for gangsters

sebastian licht : That was a brilliant way to blend culture, art, and music.

ciali : this just restored my hope in humanity, thank you. (was also delightfully creeped out at the end <3)

Pllugy : *c drol*

J C : Classical music brings out the best of any form of motion. Why? because it all comes down from the heart. Always play from your heart.
