The Music of Strangers - Yo-Yo Ma & The Silk Road Ensemble
© The Orchard / Participant Media / HBO Documentary Films

Avec humour, tendresse et émotion, The Music of Strangers nous raconte l’histoire de personnes exceptionnelles de talent, d’humilité et de générosité, des musiciens prodigieux venus du monde entier et rassemblés à l’initiative de Yo-Yo Ma. 
Des plus grandes salles de concert européennes aux camps de réfugiés de Jordanie, des rives du Bosphore aux montagnes chinoises, ces virtuoses unissent leur art et leurs cultures et font la démonstration qu'avec des idées simples et des convictions fortes, on peut changer le monde.

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.
The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, the latest film from the creators of the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom and the critically-hailed Best of Enemies, follows an ever-changing lineup of performers drawn from the ensemble’s more than 50 instrumentalists, vocalists, composers, arrangers, visual artists and storytellers as they gather in locations across the world, exploring the ways art can both preserve traditions and shape cultural evolution.
Blending performance footage, personal interviews and archival film, director Morgan Neville and producer Caitrin Rogers focus on the journeys of a small group of Silk Road Ensemble mainstays from across the globe to create an intensely personal chronicle of passion, talent and sacrifice. Through these moving individual stories, the filmmakers paint a vivid portrait of a bold musical experiment and a global search for the ties that bind.
