American cellist prodigy Yo-Yo Ma recorded Sing Me Home with the Silk Road Ensemble, a musical collective with performers and composers from all over the world. The album features guest appearances by Grammy Award winning artists Toumani Diabate, Gregory Porter, Lisa Fischer, Bill Frisell and many more. Released in 2016, Sing Me Home was meant to open hearts, ears, and minds during a time of tragedy and political turmoil. 'All around the world, people constantly meet the unfamiliar through change,' Yo-Yo Ma said of the album. 'Rapid or dramatic change can feel threatening, tempting us to build walls to defend against the unknown. At Silk Road we build bridges. In the face of change and difference, we find ways to integrate and synthesize, to forge relationships, and to create joy and meaning.' Bringing together the cultural backgrounds of the musicians, Sing Me Home is a culturally conscious album, reflecting on modern globalization and collaboration. From Macedonian folk to traditional music from Mali, and from Irish fiddle to Indian sitar: it all comes together. Critics agreed, and the album went on to win the Grammy Award for Best World Music Album in 2017. Sing Me Home is available as a limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies on translucent green colored vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve.
