From the director of the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom and the critically acclaimed Best of Enemies, the new film The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble tells the extraordinary story of the renowned international musical collective created by legendary cellist Yo-Yo Ma. The feature-length documentary follows this group of diverse instrumentalists, vocalists, composers, arrangers, visual artists and storytellers as they explore the power of music to preserve tradition, shape cultural evolution and inspire hope.

“Traditions are born of innovation and when culture fails to innovate, it will die.”

-Yo-Yo Ma, cellist and founder of the Silk Road Ensemble

 

“The intersection of cultures is where new things emerge.”

-Yo-Yo Ma
