The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and The Silk Road Ensemble

From the director of the Oscar-winning documentary '20 Feet from Stardom.' "'Strangers' offers an inspiring look at creative people from very different walks of life who nonetheless communicate beautifully with one another. They don't need to speak a common language: Their dazzling music says it all." - Washington Post

“With a documentary called The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, there's no doubting that wonderful sounds will be in store. But that's not all that's on offer.

“For, as directed by Morgan Neville, Strangers turns out to be as concerned with emotion as with performance, spending much of its time investigating how so much joyous music was able to come out of exploration, disturbance, even pain.

“At the center of everything is 60-year-old cellist Ma, one of his generation's most prolific and popular classical artists, with more than 90 albums and 18 Grammy wins to his credit, a total he self-deprecatingly dismisses by saying "it's all statistics."

“Strangers is the story of how and why in the year 2000 this consummate musician decided to branch out into unexpected areas and create the Silk Road Ensemble, an international music collective that has produced six albums and given concerts seen by 2 million people in 33 countries.” – Kenneth Turan, LA Times
