Being born to a singer mother and a composer father, Ma had music in his blood. He started taking cello lessons at the age of just four, and by then he had already studied the art of playing violin and viola. Ma started performing publicly at the age of five, and at seven years of age, he performed for the Presidents Dwight .D Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy. Although Ma received encouragement and support for music career throughout his life, a major decisive moment came in his life when he visited the Marlboro Festival, and saw the legendary cellist Pablo Casals perform. The degree of commitment and belief projected by Casals inspired Ma a great deal.
Yo-Yo Ma won the “Avery Fisher” prize in 1978, which put him in the list of genuine classical musicians. From then on he became part of nearly all of the fabulous orchestras’ performances, and took active part in chamber music as well.

In 2006, Kofi Annan named Yo-Yo Ma as the “Peace Ambassador to the United Nations”, and in 2009 President Barak Obama appointed him to the “President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities”. Ma describes himself as a “venture culturalist”, and has an insatiable appetite for different music styles. One of his aims is to explore music as a bridge for transference of ideas across different cultures, and as a means of better communication throughout the world. On these very lines, Ma started his Silk Road Project, whose idea was to promote blending of the cultural, intellectual and artistic traditions along the ancient trade route extending from Mediterranean Sea to the Pacific.
