On Sing Me Home the renowned cello player Yo-Yo Ma and The Silk Road Ensemble join forces again to explore the ever-changing idea of home through original and traditional folk tunes. Joining them is a remarkable cast of international performers consisting of Gregory Porter, Bill Frisell, Abigail Washburn, Rhiannon Giddens, Martin Hayes, Sarah Jarosz, and many more.
This sixth album is the group's most personal recording yet with each track sounding like a beautiful and honest love note to a place. In the words of Yo-Yo Ma himself: "The music composed, arranged, and performed by Ensemble members and our friends on Sing Me Home is a tribute to how culture helps us all to meet, connect, and create something new."
