A very unique performance of the opera "Carmen"

(CBS News) Your blogger here loves music so much that he does a weekly thing here at The Feed for all of you: the Friday Music Round-Up. And while I try my best to hold back on posting great musical items until that time, I never seem to be able to make it happen. You can tell where I'm going with this, so go ahead and watch a very unusual but phenomenal performance above.

The very unique rendition of "La Habanera" from the opera "Carmen" was performed and posted by French street band Zic Zazou. So, then, my defense for posting this early and not waiting until Friday is that I wanted to expose you all to some culture in the form of one of the great operas. Yeah, I think I'm going to go ahead and stick with that as my excuse. And if you'd like to learn or listen to more music from Zic Zazou, be sure to visit their website by clicking here (I've gone ahead and included a link that provides an English translation of the site).
