This is the first of two programmes about the Silk Road Project, initiated by acclaimed cellist Yo Yo Ma, which brings together music and musicians from around the world. In fact, the project follows Marco Polo’s trails (from Italy to China and back) musically. The programme features music from the project as well as interviews with musicians from China, Azerbaijan and the United States.
