On Friday, June 17th at 9:00 PM EST on WNYC 93.9 FM - THE DINNER PARTY DOWNLOAD from American Public Media will air an interview hosted by Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newnam in conversation with Yo-Yo Ma on behalf of THE MUSIC OF STRANGERS & SING ME HOME. Available from Sony Music Masterworks, Sing Me Home is the sixth album by the Grammy-nominated Silk Road Ensemble and was developed and recorded alongside The Music of Strangers: the 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.
