Yo-Yo Ma Indaba Music Winners

Around this time last year Yo-Yo Ma hosted a contest on Indaba Music.com where musicians from around the world were challenged to collaborate with Yo-Yo on Dona Nobis Pacem, a track off of his album Songs Of Joy & Peace. Two winners were chosen, The Pikes Peak Ringers a Handbell Choir based out of Colorado and Toshi O, a rockin' heavy metal guitarist from BC. Check out their winning submissions here.

I was one of about 700 that took part in that contest. I want to thank you again for that opportunity. Congrats on that new boxed edition! It is incredible. And the appointment by the President is definitely well deserved!! Anymore contests coming any time soon... as I'm sure you just have absolutely tons of time on your hands between the President and the First Lady and the Boxed Set and the Silk Road Project (saw the concert in the park in NY, absolutely loved it!), and the premiering new works in Atlanta and in NY.... and well, like I said, you must have just tons of free time on your hands!!! Sticking out tongue

Thank you for all that you do!!

By the way, I really like the music you make with your cello too, so rich, so beautiful....

Soothes my savage soul! Smiling
