This 5 Year Old Violinist Will Blow Your Mind

Akim Camara, age five, playing Felix Mendelssohn's "Dance of the Fairies" with violinist Andre Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra. Akim hails from Berlin and has been playing music since he was two--before he could speak and while he was still in diapers. He has the amazing ability to remember music after only hearing it once or twice.

Today, Akim is 14 years old and still plays the violin and piano, though he prefers to keep out of the spotlight. However, that doesn't mean he's not still pursuing his passion, as you can see in the video below from a 2013 performance.

Akim doesn't read music, but instead remembers everything he hears and plays from memory. He's still fairly young, so we don't know what he'll choose to do musically in the future. Nevertheless, we can't wait to hear more music from him, whatever it might be. Until then, you can check out his YouTube channel for more of his performances.
