About us

Preceded by traditional music from China

The Silk Road Ensemble, an international collective created by acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma, and including Kayhan Kalhor, exemplifies music’s ability to blur geographical boundaries, blend disparate cultures and inspire hope for both artists and audiences. Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville’s film includes performances, interviews and archival film to create an intensely personal chronicle of passion, talent and sacrifice.
