Yo-Yo Ma: “Krunk means something very special because it represents a mix of sorrow and hope”

On October 19, 2020, despite the challenges caused by the global pandemic and the heartbreaking military aggression in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, the first event of Aurora’s “Gratitude in Action” anniversary series took place in New York City, honoring the Aurora Prize Laureates and Humanitarians and the Initiative’s 5th anniversary.

Yo-Yo Ma, Cellist, shared a powerful message at the “Gratitude in Action” event:

“Krunk – Crane – means something very special because it represents a mix of sorrow and hope. I believe that it’s that mixture, Vartan, that has given you a lot of your wisdom, and it is the hope that we have today, combined with the sorrow also that is happening right now, as well as over a 100 years ago, that we want to have soar and to bring us into a better world.”
