Silk Road Music
A Vancouver award winning ensemble who introduces different cultures through their experience and travels. With inspiration, and passion, expressing unique views on traditional music, uniting East and West, they deliver virtuosity and imagination.
Silk Road Music incorporates improvisation in their performances. The Chinese Garden is always a place to push the boundaries and introduce new ideas. For the 20th Enchanted Evenings, pianist Ron Hadley is our special guest who is a brilliant, creative and versatile improviser. His sensibility for oriental music and modern approach to harmony is exhilarating! The ancient road will merge on to a freeway and explore the power, the impact, and the horizon of a modern turnpike!
“Chinese traditional instrumental sounds with contemporary global soundscapes on a national and international level. If there were a single word to describe Silk Road’s approach to musical performance it would have to be play.” Allison sokil. Alberta University
