A grand odyssey around the world by one of music’s greatest ensembles.
Founded by superstar cellist Yo-Yo Ma, Silkroad Ensemble is a virtuoso collective inspired by the colours of the world – and the rich musical language borne from our cultural differences. Its Grammy Award-winning music is a vibrant, passionate and ecstatic celebration of global artistic traditions, performed by outstanding contemporary musicians representing dozens of nationalities and instrumental disciplines. Universally famous in its own right, this dynamic, ever-evolving group is composed of international artists who unite to present unique, never-to-be-repeated concerts. Converging centuries, continents and cultures, its repertoire will bring together traditional Vietnamese, Chinese and Kazakh music; Finnish folk song; jugalbandi (Indian classical); popular jazz; and much more. A privilege to see and even more beautiful to hear - a Silkroad performance is nothing short of exhilarating!
Academy award-winning director Morgan Neville has also made a documentary about the The Silkroad project The Music of Strangers. Watch the official trailer and stream the documentary here
