Sponsored by the Beijing Century Foundation and Times Square NYC, the video will show a portion of Yun's 2019 classical performance at New York's Carnegie Hall with Ali and other artists.

“I feel honoured to be a part of this display,” said Sethi in a statement. “I have always believed in our musical traditions, in their power to win hearts and change minds, and I feel so proud to represent them before the world.”
