Silk Road Music had a wonderful time at the Vancouver Folk Festival last weekend. The response from the audience was heartwarming! We felt so rewarded because of their enthusiasm and reaction.To continue with all the excitement, we really want you to know about the upcoming concert at the magical Chinese Garden. A rare opportunity of having Silk Road’s long term friend Celso Machado to join us for this Enchanted Evenings. He is special to all of us! Please make sure you come down to see us and try not to wait to the last minute to get your tickets, because every year we sell out. We apologize to those friends who didn’t get in last year at the gate. Seating is really limited. so, we recommend you make reservations.
Thank you very much!

The Year of Rabbit! The 20th year of Silk Road Music!
We are back from Spain after 3 months of intense Flamenco immersion. It makes a perfect transition for us to start our new 2011 season. We are inspired and challenged by the capacity of the modern Flamenco style. It convinced us we have lots of new ways for us to say something with our music technically and emotionally. Having a concentrated time to focus on practice and learning, it re-enforced our passion for music that is still the driving force pushing us forward. The Road is extending!
We are so looking forward to the new year and may you have a good one,too!
After our busy Olympic season, Silk Road is ready for the next step. We have a complete new website on the go.
Thanks to John McLachlan! It is much easier to navigate, so you can tell us what you think or check on our latest news, as you wish.
In the fall of 2010, Andre and Qiu Xia are going to Spain for Flamenco studies. To prepare for our new musical education, we have started playing more flamenco music on both pipa and guitar. You can judge our progress at this Friday’s concert. Please keep sending your encouragement until we can report to you again live on stage with an even better performance after Jerez.
