Legendary cellist Yo-Yo Ma performed Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Suite No. 1 for Unaccompanied Cello” along the U.S.-Mexico border on Saturday as part of an event meant to celebrate the relationship between the two border cities: Laredo, Texas, and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.

According to NPR News, the renowned cellist performed in a park in Laredo nearby the Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge, which is one of the bridges that connect the United States and Mexico.

The article goes on to state the following:

The portions of Bach’s “Suite No. 1 for Unaccompanied Cello” that Ma performed were part of his Bach Project, which uses the centuries-old classical music to explore cultural connections.

“As you all know, as you did and do and will do, in culture, we build bridges, not walls,” Ma said Saturday, according to the publication. “I’ve lived my life at the borders. Between cultures. Between disciplines. Between musics. Between generations.”
