After a week of conversations and provocations around the theme of how we create common ground in a landscape of rifts and divisions, we conclude the 2017 Skoll World Forum with a performance that embodies the enduring project of partnerships that reach across great divides. The Silk Road Ensemble is an inspiring model of multicultural artistic exchange, a collective of musicians and composers from around the world creating work informed by the historical connections forged between East and West along the ancient trade route.
Silk Road Ensemble members Christina Pato and Kinan Azmeh will perform a selection and join us in conversation.
