The Joy of Music

For expressions of sheer joy, just look at the faces of the artists in the documentary The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble. The documentary tells the story of the Silk Road Project from its beginning in 1998, focusing on the stories of several of the key players. The outreach and music-making continue today building cultural connections and celebrating our common humanity through the language of music. From the web site: "We know that music cannot stop a bullet or feed the hungry, but it can bring empathy and joy to places where they are in short supply."
