“Since the very beginning, the Silk Road Ensemble has been about departure and explorations, new encounters and homecomings. The music composed, arranged, and performed by Ensemble members and our friends on ‘Sing Me Home’ is a tribute to how culture helps us all to meet, connect, and create something new.”
