We've all been schooled in the perils of stranger danger, but who knew stranger collaboration could be so beautiful?

Exhibit A: This apparently spontaneous moment when three strangers joined together in song, captured on video by another bystander, Jaime Maldonado.

"I was walking to [the grocery store] and saw this guy playing a song. It sounded good so I decided to record it." Maldonado writes on Facebook. "By the end of the song three guys started jamming. This truly is music in its simplest form."

The guitarist has since been identified as Jesse Rya, a Texas musician, who says the moment reflects on "the power music can have on the soul."

"This is an example of how easy it should be for us to communicate," Rya added.

While some viewers believe the spontaneous outburst of song was staged, the Daily Dot argues to the contrary, noting "the universal pull of music, even among strangers, is a strong one."

Hey, stranger things have happened.
