"It started with the idea of a party, a party built around the concept of joy and the infinite varieties of joy to be found in the world. But joy can't exist in our world without the comfort of peace. As we all draw closer and closer together in this world, nothing is more important. So as much as the music in this album is about joy, it is also about peace, about the two operating in tandem. I am really excited to know that I have all these fabulous colleagues who think the same way." Yo-Yo Ma on SONGS OF JOY & PEACE
