In Yo-Yo Ma's new video, the cellist is seen on top of a city building playing the Prelude from Bach's Cello Suite No. 1, coupled with the message: "Culture – the way we express ourselves and understand each other – can bind us together as one world." Then a dramatic cityscape, to a ballet studio, an ice rink, and from a potter's studio to a tailor's workshop, the video answers the question "Show the world how you express yourself and what brings your community together." Ma's two-year-long project has him perform Bach's music in 36 locations around the world and partner with community organisations for 'Days of Action'.
