Conceived by Yo-Yo Ma in 1998, the GRAMMY® Award-winning Silkroad Ensemble thrills audiences worldwide with a collective of artists representing dozens of nationalities and artistic traditions. Now this prestigious ensemble brings us “Home Within,” an emotional accounting of home in a time of conflict. An audio-visual performance conceived by Syrian composer and clarinetist Kinan Azmeh and Syrian Armenian visual artist Kevork Mourad, it is an impressionistic reflection on the unity of loss, longing, and the impact of tragedy on our sense of “home.” The artists document “home” within specific moments in Syria’s recent history, using image and sound to establish a sense of sustained urgency and continued hope for their homeland and communities around the world.
“One of the 21st century’s great ensembles”
