Beauty Is The Revenge Of The Human Spirit

The Silk Road Project is a musical journey.  Musicians, vocalists, and composers from over 20 countries come together to create a new, international sound.  The ideas behind this project are powerful, it uses the art of music to be a force for good in the world.

The clearest reason for music, for culture, is it gives us meaning. Art is about possibility. Possibility links to hope. We all need hope. […]   By trying to kill the human spirit, the answer of the human spirit is to revenge with beauty.  It’s a new way of thinking about music, about what people can do together.  There’s no East or West, it’s just a globe.  We don’t speak perfect English, or perfect Chinese, or perfect Persian, but we speak perfect music language.  Being part of this experiment makes me understand what it means to be a live. Everybody is afraid, but if you can make a connection to another human being you can turn fear into joy.
