Yo-Yo Ma has long been renowned for his cello-playing prowess, but the contemporary classical music icon's recent online remix competition proves that Ma welcomes the opportunity to share the spotlight.
Yo-Yo Ma recently uploaded his version of the classic song "Dona Nobis Pacem (Give Us Peace)" to Indaba.com and invited listeners to submit their artistic takes on his creation. The results ranged from operatic melodies to hardcore rock anthems, all of which are positively delightful to listen to. Incidentally, the winners of the contest were Toshi O., who submitted a metal guitar track, and Kevin McChesney, who played the handbells.
