Silk Road Project concert

I went to a classical concert last Saturday of the Silk Road Project. It was absolutely phenomenal. It's a company founded by YoYo Ma (yes, he and his cello were there) that incorporates instruments and musicals styles from all over the world and across many periods in time. It's a sort of classical-jazz-world-improvisation type of fusion that's unlike anything else I've heard. They've recorded a few albums that are on itunes (audio on their website too); I recommend giving it a glance and if they come to your city, go and watch it live.

I also got to hear YoYo Ma say the phrase "Go Blue!"

I bought one of their albums yesterday on Amazon... only because of your recommendation.
