When He Was 5, This Child Prodigy Was Already A Professional Violinist

This kid would make Mozart feel inadequate.

Violinist Akim Camara was very young when he started commanding the attention of the international music world. Seen here performing before thousands in New York's famed Radio City Music Hall when he was 5, this ultra-talented child prodigy completely wows the crowd.

Akim began practicing the violin at age two while still in diapers. Despite the fact that he was still learning to talk, Akim's violin instructor reportedly raved about his "ear for music." The tyke made his public musical debut in a concert when he was 3.

Italian website Mamme.it reports that now-14-year-old's love of music has stayed strong as he's grown older, and that he now has the ability to learn any piece of music after just one listen.

Which is, in a word, incredible.
