All told, fifteen minutes of fame would be a pretty good run. Three anonymous minutes is much more the norm. Through the magic of global youtubification, we can stumble down streets, not always sure what city we're in, and discover musicians whose names we'll never know playing for spare currency-of-their-homeland. We pay them now in the coinage of tribute with a collection of remarkable performances via vacationers cell phone cameras.
