In this video, Yo-Yo Ma explores the universal resonance of Bach through user-generated footage. The video integrates Ma’s performance of the Prélude from Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1 with footage contributed in response to the prompt ‘Show the world how you express yourself and what brings your community together.’

It marks the start of the next chapter of Ma’s two-year-long Bach Project, which brings his performance of Bach’s suites for solo cello to 36 places around the world.
