Backup singers live in a world that lies just beyond the spotlight. Their voices bring harmony to the biggest bands in popular music, but we've had no idea who these singers are or what lives they lead, until now.
Yo Yo Ma is legendary and the movie does act like somewhat of a biography of the man, but it's real focus is creating this orchestra that brings together music from many different nations and many different cultures to see how they would sound all as one. So the film gives us good music and a good message about coming together.
While Ma is most likely the most well known of these musicians (At least for me, anyway) The movie does do a profile of a few of the other musicians as well.
But for the most part, it's an excellent conceptual film that introduces all different types of music in the world and the people who make it and how that music can work as one.
