Let’s do this.

Nicholas Ma – How old is he?

Nicholas Ma is a product of American super cellist Yo-Yo Ma and Jill Hornor, an art consultant. We do not know when Nicholas was born though we know he is the first of the couple’s two kids. And we know that the parents got married in 1978.

Who is Nicholas Ma’s father?

The question should be, who is Nicholas Ma. This is a classic example of Jesus I know, Paul I know, who are you? Usually, people bring out the popular person and ask about the not known parent or spouse. The reverse is the case here. Nichola’s father is world-famous.

He was born in Paris to Chinese parents in 1955. But he grew up in the US where he had his education, ultimately studying a certain Harvard University. He started as a child prodigy cellist and has played in countless countries, from folk music to classical melodies to Chinese melodies to the tangos, performing with an ancient cello from Italy valued in millions.
