Cellist Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble is in its 16th year and its music horizons just keep getting broader.  Their new album, Sing Me Home, features guest performances by guitarist Bill Frisell, banjoist Abigail Washburn, African kora players Toumani Diabate, Balla Kouyate and among eight others musicians from around the world. In addition, there is a new documentary, "The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and The Silk Road Ensemble," opens tomorrow June 10. Directed by Morgan Neville who won an Oscar for his film, "20 Feet From Stardom." I get a few feet from a different kind of stardom with Yo-Yo Ma, Kinan Azmeh, Johnny Gandelsman and Wu Man of the Silk Road Ensemble.
