Here's a little "something completely different" to warm up your winter day.  With only ten fingers and three strings, he has the whole cosmos at his finger tips.

Teaser:  At 6:44 on the time code, he plays "Yes, Sir, That's My Baby."

The artist: Alexei Arkhipovskiy (Balalaika monster, extraordinaire)

This video made me change my mind! I've always said that if I were reincarnated I'd like to come back as a ragtime piano player. Now, after seeing this amazing performance, I'd prefer to come back magically already knowing how to play the balalaika! (But, please, not in Russia!) Many thanks for posting! Incredible!
