Charles Yang on Violin, Michael Thurber on Bass, and Eddie Barbash on Alto Saxophone… together they are The Human Jukebox, a super-viral musical video experiment by cdza. In this experiment, they use donations as votes, and then donate those donations to Wingspan Artsa non-profit that reaches out to expose diverse and young audiences of people to performing, visual, media and literary arts. An awesome video on multiple levels.
