Oh come on, I think people find great soloists for film work not because of their ethnicity. Ma and Perlman are simply two of the best instrumentalists out there. Ma's done a great deal of work in films- ranging from Tan Dun scores and Williams to (gasp!) Philip Glass. And Perlman's done Hero (for Tan Dun) too. Hard to find a connection there.

So I think your conclusions are a bit superficial.
