Sing Me Home, the sixth album by the Grammy-nominated Yo-Yo Ma & Silk Road Ensemble is the companion album alongside The Music of Strangers documentary feature from Oscar® and Emmy-winning director Morgan Neville. Produced by Silk Road Ensemble member Johnny Gandelsman and Grammy Award winner Kevin Killen (U2, Kate Bush, Elvis Castello, David Bowie), the album examines the ever-changing idea of home, with original and traditional tunes composed or arranged by members of the Ensemble's unique collective of global artists. Each piece invites listeners to explore the "music of home" through the individual experiences of Ensemble members, many of whom are immigrants. The result is a compelling collection of innovative and deeply moving tributes to the rich cultural heritage of the Balkans, China, Galicia, India, Iran, Ireland, Japan, Mali, people of the Roma, Syria, and the United States. The album made #2 on Syndicated 'Global Village Best of 2016.'
