Ryan Gosling is known for being a sexy, brooding character, making women swoon in his wake in his movies.But the actor is also an accomplished musician and took his music on the road today and played the baglamas while walking down the street in New York City.

He wore grey trousers, a white v-neck T-shirt and had a brown cardigan thrown over his shoulders.

The baglamas was attached to string which he hung around his neck for comfort while enjoying his outdoor concert for one.
