#musicmonday: Yo-Yo Ma and Lil Buck
I love this. It feels like over the last few years we've been culturally trained so that a collaboration between "high" and "low" culture is not unique, but I think we still expect a beat to come in, the popular form outdoing the old. But without the booming bass track it seems like you actually appreciate the dance more. I'm no dance expert (10 years of recitals to Paula Abdul and Janet Jackson not withstanding), but a lot of the dance harkens to ballet and the ending outdoes many modern dance pieces.
