North Wind blows through London

Posted on 30 August 2011

Here's what the Guardian thought of it. The same show comes to Lancaster Institute for Contemporary Arts in November. Here's a complete video of the London performance, with Sadhbh Dennedy in the soprano role.

THE SILK ROAD ENSEMBLE WITH YO-YO MA: A PLAYLIST WITHOUT BORDERS

Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Project has been on a mission to promote innovation and cross-cultural understanding through the arts for the last 15 years; the latest chapter comes with their new album, A Playlist Without Borders. The vision of Yo-Yo Ma's limitless collective is as timely as ever: to connect the world's neighborhoods by bringing together artists and audiences. From flashy surf guitar sounds to ninth century Chinese poetry, from modular playlists to Egyptian rhythms, the Silk Road Ensemble mixes the modern and the traditional, breaking boundaries of ethnicity and era. The Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma's A Playlist Without Borders is the groundbreaking group's fifth recording and the first since 2009's Grammy® nominated Off the Map. With A Playlist Without Borders, The Silk Road Ensemble once again demonstrates that there are no barriers for those approaching music with an open mind.
