Watch this epic mashup of Symphony No. 5 and Mambo No. 5

According to Wikipedia, the Symphony No. 5 in C minor Beethoven is one of the best-known compositions in classical music, and one of the most frequently played symphonies. On the other hand, Mambo No. 5 is a mambo and jive dance song originally recorded and composed by Cuban Dámaso Pérez Prado in 1949 and which popularity was renewed by German artist Lou Bega.

Meet the Japanese composer, conductor, and musician Akira Miyagawa.

According to his website, he was born on February 18, 1961 and he continues to distinguish himself as a composer of musicals and theatrical plays. He has won two excellence awards of prestigious Yomiuri Theater Awards in the theater company category.
