Video: Yo-Yo Ma and the Goat Rodeo Sessions

.

The Goat Rodeo Sessions was an ambitious and groundbreaking project that brought together four string virtuosos: world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma, fiddler Stuart Duncan, bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolinist Chris Thile. These artists — each prominent figures individually — came together as a unique ensemble for this project. The music, including two tracks with female vocalist Aoife O’Donovan, crosses several different genres.

While visiting Google New York they performed a few selections from their new record. After the performance the group chatted with Lauren Carpenter about music and technology.
