Yoshihiro Tsujimoto

More popularly known as a jazz musician from Japan, Yoshihiro Tsujimoto enlisted his trusty saxophone to do a cover of Avicii’s “Wake Me Up.” The young Tsujimoto sat at a drum set and supplied his own beat for the song, proving he can play more than just the saxophone and the clarinet. Here it is in all its glory.


The versatile artist was recently in Austin for SXSW. Get a load of the jam session he started earlier this month.

He’s gone on to win many different awards and release two albums with the jazz band, Carmela. Now he’s making the rounds and continues to be a central figure in the jazz community. Perhaps Avicii will notice and hit up Tsujimoto for a collab. One can hope.
