The Internet is a great place for the melding of experiences. Here are two fine examples of the merging of the traditional and modern: Kevin Olusola is a cellist, and Greg Pattillo is a flautist. Both can drop a great beat while they play, making for some wonderful music.
(And, because I love Chicago and harmonicas, here’s Yuri Lane, too.)

Greg Pattillo and thePROJECTTrio, playing “Sweet Dreams”
Yuri Lane, playing harmonica on the streets of Chicago
I could listen to this stuff all day. In fact, I think I will.
