last night we went to see yo-yo ma and the silk road ensemble at the hollywood bowl. simply put, words fail me…… but I’ll try anyways… ;-)
the collection of phenomenal artists that ma has pulled together, it’s staggering. sandeep das on those drums; I swear his hands were blurring… and wu man on the pipa… nothing short of incredible.
I think the coolest bit was just that ma, who has played with the best symphonies in the world, was up on stage having a blast. he was just loving every minute of it, and stepping back to let some extraordinarily talented musicians take the forefront.
easily one of the best concerts I’ve been to in a long time.
