Yo-Yo Ma heads into the recording studio with Members of the Indaba Music community

Yo-Yo Ma is going into the recording studio today to collaborate with the musicians that won his Celebrate and Collaborate contest on Indaba Music last year.

Through Indaba Music, the leading online music collaboration web application and social network, Ma made available a pre-recorded melody of the classic piece, “Dona Nobis Pacem” (Give Us Peace), a track off of his holiday album Songs of Joy & Peace. Members of the Indaba Music community, musicians from all over the world, were challenged to record a counterpart to Ma’s cello or create a set of variations based on the main musical theme. As their winning prize Yo-Yo will join these musicians in the studio on Wednesday to record Dona Nobis Pacem with them in person.

These tracks will be made available through iTunes as part of Songs of Joy & Peace.
