    The year 2020 has put immense pressure on humankind, as the world was first shaken by the prospects of World War III and later hit by the coronavirus pandemic, which also brought an economic downturn. However, there is no use in being constantly worried - as everybody needs a moment of peace to face those challenges.

    American musician Yo-Yo Ma has launched the #SongsOfComfort hashtag, issuing a video where he plays a composition by Antonín Dvořák to help people calm down during this uneasy period.

    "In these days of anxiety, I wanted to find a way to continue to share some of the music that gives me comfort", he said in the description below the video.
