Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble
Led by renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma, the Silk Road Ensemble is the musical face of Ma's Silk Road Project, an artistic, cultural and educational organization he founded in 1998 to "study the ebb and flow of ideas along" the ancient trade route. They visit the NPR studios where NPR's Fred Child talks with members of the ensemble, and we hear them play "Mido Mountain," a folk song from Yunnan Province.
