Spike Jonze presents video of "Lil Buck" dancing and Yo-Yo Ma playing cello

(CBS) - What a fascinating and beautiful collaboration! Spike Jonze has posted a video of cellist Yo-Yo Ma playing while LA-based "Lil Buck" (Damian Woetzel) does an original dance. The music and dancing kick in at about 40 seconds into the clip. 

In terms of the event, here is what Spike Jonze had to say:

The other day, I was lucky enough to be at an event to bring the arts back into schools and got to see an amazing collaboration between Yo-Yo Ma and a young dancer in LA, Lil Buck. Someone who knows Yo-Yo Ma had seen Lil Buck on YouTube and put them together. The dancing is Lil Buck's own creation and unlike anything I've seen. Hope you enjoy.
