User Reviews

 
A special group of humans and humanists
16 August 2017 | by rapan-2See all my reviews

Yo-yo Ma and The Silk Road Ensemble have such a warm rapport with each other and the audience. It is uplifting in this current political climate of divisiveness to see such cooperation and empathy all through the film. The music is wonderful and Yo-Yo Ma is a very special ambassador of international good will.
