Weekday Culture.

Charles Riley (a.k.a. Lil Buck) is a hip-hop choreographer; his specialty is a dance called the Memphis Jook. Yo-Yo Ma is the best-known cellist in the world.

Their collaboration at a benefit for art programs in public schools is, in a word, amazing!

For your reference, Yo-Yo Ma plays “The Swan” (a.k.a. “The Dying Swan”), by Camille Saint-SaĆ«ns; the piece is meant to evoke a body moving through water.


I am absolutely fascinated by how beautifully these two seemingly disparate art forms come together.
