NYC Subway Music Collaboration: Ukelele Lady And Congas Man Cheer Up Straphangers (VIDEO)
In one of those random, pleasant, only-in-new-york moments guaranteed to make you smile, watch as a woman playing the ukelele, and a
bongo conga player (apparently strangers) spontaneously collaborate on the train while an extemporaneous emcee cheers them on.

okay- what you are about to watch is a true new york experience. what originally started out as a typical nyc subway ride (sitting across from guy who smelled like urine) turned into an awesome performance by two people who have never met before. i captured the whole thing on video.
the singer continued with another great song after the entire subway car demanded an encore. her name is jessica latshaw- make sure to check out her music.
Animal New York is right: "it's rare for someone singing on the train not to be annoying, so enjoy." And plus, it's a lot better than watching dudes put rats in their mouths or flash their fellow passengers.
Correction: This article previously stated the man was playing the bongos. He is actually playing a pair of conga drums, which are taller and make a deeper sound than bongos.
