Bookmark and Share

On June 6, Darlene Love hosted a special New York screening of Orchard's documentary "The Music of Strangers." The premiere was held at NYC's City Cinemas 123 and an after-party followed at Lotus Club where guests were treated to a special performance by the Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma. Gaby Hoffman, Brooke Baldwin, Alan Alda and Clive Davis were a few of the other notables in attendance. Blending performance footage, personal interviews, and archival film, director Morgan Neville ("20 Feet From Stardom") and producer Caitrin Rogers focus on the personal journeys of a small group of Silk Road Ensemble mainstays: Kinan Azmeh (Syria), Kayhan Kalhor (Iran), Yo-Yo Ma (France/United States), Wu Man (China), and Cristina Pato (Spain) to chronicle passion, talent, and sacrifice.
