Echoes Playlist
Acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma talks about his latest journeys east with the Silk Road Ensemble. In a time of global conflict, Ma is seeking a unifying strain that reaches into the collective consciousness and flowers in the musical communion of the Silk Road Ensemble, a band that gathers musicians and composers from Japan to Armenia and points in between. On the heels of their second album, SILK ROAD JOURNEYS: BEYOND THE HORIZON (Sony Classical), we gather the cellist and his band together to talk about their musical explorations.
