Latino USA producer Antonia Cereijido was at the airport Friday when she heard someone playing a double flute—and playing it pretty damn well. She eventually caught a glimpse of the performance and he looked pretty familiar.

"I saw a man walking around my terminal playing a flute for 40 min and was losing my mind because I thought it was André 3000," Cereijido tweeted. "And then it WAS André 3000!"

Of course, she had to secure photographic evidence of the encounter:

It's good to see that the OutKast member has remained on brand. 

Cereijido went to admit that she didn't say "anything good" to André, despite being a full-fledged stan.

"[...] I should’ve talked about how good his verse on [Frank Ocean's] 'Solo' is," she tweeted. "And how my mom once had a dream he taught our family to dance the hey ya dance and we had achieved the American Dream. W/E NO REGRETS."

I just got off the phone with Guillermo Martinez the man who made Andres's beautiful flute. It's a Mayan double flute. He and his shop are doing incredible work by keeping the music if indigenous North American communities alive. Here is his website:
