Fonseca took Times Square by surprise this Thursday by performing for hundreds of visitors that walked the streets of New York City.

The Colombian artist gathered flash mob-style in the city’s most popular section to play for the public. Fonseca played several songs, and 50 dancers, dispersed among the crowd, made their way to the front of the stage and did their choreographed dance.

While all this was happening, images of Colombia were being shown on the big screens. Just before the event, Fonseca said, “Es una idea loca que se nos ocurrió y hemos podido llevarla a cabo. El propósito es que la gente sepa lo que es realmente Colombia. [t's a crazy idea that came to us and we were able to make it happen. The purpose is to let people know what Colombia really is.]"
