Sony Music Masterworks release Sing Me Home TODAY, the latest album by Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble. This exciting recording features several guest performers including Abigail Washburn, Bill Frisell, Gregory Porter, Lisa Fischer, Rhiannon Giddens, Sarah Jarosz and several more international icons and virtuosos. It is the companion album developed and recorded alongside the new Morgan Neville documentary titled The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma & the Silk Road Ensemble which is slated for theatrical release in June 2016.

The recording examines the ever-changing concept of home, with original and traditional songs composed, arranged and performed by members of the Silk Road Ensemble. Produced by Silk Road Ensemble member Johnny Gandelsman and Grammy Award winner Kevin Killen, the recording's 13 tracks reflect the boundless creativity of the individual members of the Ensemble as well as the diverse contributions of the guest artists. Yo-Yo Ma plays cello on 9 songs and beautifully makes it possible for us to discover so many different musical traditions.
