SILKROAD ARTISTS

Silkroad artists are freelance musicians, teachers, producers, arts leaders, and advocates. This versatile and dynamic collective can be seen in many different configurations and settings from rousing complements of eighteen at outdoor music festivals and in renowned concert halls to intimate groups of two or three at professional development workshops, university residencies, and in public school classrooms. Silkroad artists represent dozens of nationalities and traditions, drawing upon their many layered contemporary identities to create a shared language that aspires to build a more hopeful and inclusive world.
