Maybe more appropriately title Music of Friends...this documentary chronicles the lives of the musicians of the Silk Road Ensembles and their journey to meld music from along the silk road. Coming together again and again to share music and culture, over the course of 18 years they develop a deep camaraderie and connection through the music they perform around the globe. Virtuosic and improvisatory in all regards. Each is determined to use the power of music to transcend borders and political divides yet they acknowledge and understanding the immense challenge of bring people together where there is division and unrest.
