What comes to mind when you think of Chinese music? Pastoral melodies on silk strings? Gongs and drums? If so, then you have not heard the Silk Road Ensemble.

Stunning muscianship, featuring Qiu Xia He on pipa, Shirley Yuan on erhu, Zhi Min Yu on ruan, Brazilian guitarist Celso Machado and dancer Yang Yang with vocals by Feng Jun Wang, draws you into a whirlwind of discovery and amazement. They travel the world of music easily alternating between traditional Chinese music, Irish jigs and ballads, Brazilian sambas, and even Mozart. Through the creative combining of their talents and skills on instruments of their native countries, they have helped bridge cultural gaps and delighted audiences around the world.
