Yo-Yo Ma

Cellist, Sound Postings LLC

Yo-Yo Ma was born to Chinese parents in Paris. He began to study the cello with his father when he was four; three years later, he moved with his family to the United States, where he continued his cello studies before pursuing a liberal arts education. Yo-Yo’s career is testament to his enduring faith in culture’s ability to generate trust and understanding, from the global collective Silkroad to the Bach Project, a six-continent cultural journey. Most recently, he has been exploring the ways culture connects us to the natural world: over the next several years, Yo-Yo will visit places that epitomize nature’s potential to move the human soul, creating works of art and convening conversations that seek to strengthen our relationship to our planet and to each other.
