Released yesterday, Yo-Yo Ma's new music video featuring a performance of Bach's "Prélude" from Cello Suite No. 1 merges Ma's performance with footage contributed by fans across the world. The video clips where responses to the prompt, "Show the world how you express yourself and what brings your community together." The video included a clip from Canadia Daniel Mosionier.

Besides being stunningly beautiful, the video also marks the start of the next chapter in Ma's Bach Project, which brings his performance of Bach's suites for solo cello to 36 places around the world. As part of the Bach Project, Ma surprised onlookers in Montreal this past December with a free concert at Place des Arts métro station.
