Music TEDx

A Latin ode to Michael Jackson

Got a case of the Mondays? We’re hoping that this performance from TEDxFIU might be enough to snap you out it. In this video, Peruvian and Japanese musician Tony Succar gives an big band tribute to his favorite musician, Michael Jackson, imagining what his classic songs would sound like with Latin flair. Get ready to hear “Billie Jean” and “Black or White” in a whole new light. As Succar explains, “That’s the beauty of life — to fuse your background with the backgrounds of other places.”
