yo-yo ma

Tonight on PBS you can watch Yo-Yo Ma and The Silk Road Ensemble perform on Live from Lincoln Center. We attended the dress rehearsal last night and it was wonderful.

The music is an mix of East & West, some of the most unique sounds I have ever heard. I also fell in love with a musical instrument I have never heard, the kamancheh, played by Kayhan Kalhor from Iran (seated on the right of Yo-Yo).

Right now it is pouring rain in NYC, if this keeps up they might broadcast yesterday's performance tonight (look for us on the front row)!

wow you lucky girl! Hearing them live must have been such a treat. I will always remember the first time I heard about Yo-yo ma. I was about 5 and he was on Arther.
