Yo Yo Ma/Silk Road Ensemble: When Strangers Meet



This is cellist Yo-Yo Ma’s latest and most ambitious adventure, the Silk Road Project. It explores the cultures that flourished along the Silk Road,the ancient trade route that for centuries connected Europe and the East.This recording includes beautiful, dreamy, peaceful music from Mongolia,China, Japan, Iran, Azerbaijan, and more, performed by musicians from those countries. Ma, who participates in every piece either as soloist or part of the ensemble, plays cello and a Mongolian “horse-head fiddle.” Highly recommended. Total Time: 1 hour 18 minutes
