Founded two decades ago by the eminent cellist Yo-Yo Ma, Silkroad is a Grammy Award-winning, ever-changing ensemble of virtuoso musicians and composers from more than 20 countries. Seamlessly drawing on a rich tapestry of traditions, nationalities and instruments – from tabla to bagpipes, shakuhachi to strings – the group has been called “vibrant and virtuosic” by the Wall Street Journal, “one of the 21st century’s great ensembles” by the Vancouver Sun. A Silkroad performance is nothing short of exhilarating.
