Yo-Yo Ma‘s first-ever holiday album, released in 2008, is now available not only in vinyl, but signed by the world renowned cellist at Barnes and Noble.
This album features performances with incredible guest artists including James Taylor, Diana Krall, Alison Krauss, Chris Botti, Rene Fleming, Dave Brubeck and more. Inspired by the holiday spirit around the world brought by celebrations such as Christmas, Hanukkah, Eid al-Adha, Kwanzaa, Yule and New Year’s Day, Yo-Yo Ma hopes that everyone who listens to this album will hear a song familiar to them as well as discover and fall in love with the original tracks.
