Yo-Yo Ma on the importance of telling each other our stories

Clip: 04/15/2019 | 3m 43s

Cellist Yo-Yo Ma has recorded more than 100 albums, performed in every marquee concert hall across the globe and played for eight U.S. presidents. This weekend, he gave two outdoor concerts along the U.S.-Mexico border, in an effort to highlight the connections that exist between people on either side. Ma offers his humble opinion on “how culture helps us to tell our story.”
