Awesome from Chicago

I was walking down the streets of downtown Chicago when I saw an old couple playing music on the street. The man was playing the erhu and the woman was playing the accordion. By themselves, the instruments are rare enough, but together– I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen an erhu and an accordion playing together. Two totally different instruments, from two totally different musical traditions, playing in very imperfect harmony. I won’t include any heavy handed metaphors for life and culture here. I mention it because the couple was really cute and the sight was so unexpected. Check the video:
