Movie + Discussion: The Music of Strangers
February 19, 2017 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
“The intersection of cultures is where new things emerge.”
– Yo-Yo Ma, cellist and founder of the Silk Road Ensemble
Over the past 16 years, an extraordinary group of musicians has come together to celebrate the universal power of music. Named for the ancient trade route linking Asia, Africa and Europe, The Silk Road Ensemble, an international collective created by acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma, exemplifies music’s ability to blur geographical boundaries, blend disparate cultures and inspire hope for both artists and audiences.
We show this film in promotion of a similar project coming to NC State in March 2017. The Nile Project.
This event is worth 2 CENet Academic Hours.
