Founded by superstar cellist Yo-Yo Ma, Silkroad Ensemble is a virtuoso collective inspired by the colours of the world – and the rich musical language borne from our cultural differences. Its Grammy Award-winning music is a vibrant, passionate and ecstatic celebration of global artistic traditions, performed by outstanding contemporary musicians representing dozens of nationalities and instrumental disciplines.
Universally famous in its own right, this dynamic, ever-evolving group is composed of international artists who unite to present unique, never-to-be-repeated concerts. Converging centuries, continents and cultures, its repertoire will bring together traditional Vietnamese, Chinese and Kazakh music; Finnish folk song; Indian classical; popular jazz; and much more.
A privilege to see and even more beautiful to hear, Silkroad Ensemble’s maiden performance in New Zealand will be a night to remember.
Please note: Yo-Yo Ma will not be appearing
