It's for all of us who love music.
4 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yo Yo Ma is legendary and the movie does act like somewhat of a biography of the man, but it's real focus is creating this orchestra that brings together music from many different nations and many different cultures to see how they would sound all as one. So the film gives us good music and a good message about coming together.

While Ma is most likely the most well known of these musicians (At least for me, anyway) The movie does do a profile of a few of the other musicians as well.

But for the most part, it's an excellent conceptual film that introduces all different types of music in the world and the people who make it and how that music can work as one.
