NPR Latino USA producer Antonia Cereijido was walking through Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) when she spotted, of all people, Andre 3000 casually playing the flute in the terminal.
Initially, Cereijido suspected the man playing the flute was Andre 3000 of the iconic hip-hop duo Outkast but she thought she was losing her mind. Cereijido asked the rapper about his instrument and he responded that it was an indigenous double flute.
Of course, Cereijido got a photo with Andre 3000 and the two ended up boarding the same flight to New York. Her post quickly went viral.
