16 years ago, internationally renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma set about creating a musical collective consisting of talented musicians from all over the world. Calling themselves The Silk Road Ensemble and armed with a genuine love of music, they have since worked to blend different cultures and spread the message of hope to both artists and audiences. Through interviews and performance footage, we are introduced to the fascinating and disparate group of individuals who make up this unique orchestra.
