Evening Song – Saidi Swing

September 15, 2016

Yo-Yo Ma‘s Silk Road Ensemble is a gloriously promiscuous (and long-lasting) musical group, bringing together instruments, songs, and musicians from across the globe to make music that is simultaneously rooted in centuries-old traditions and expertise, and (figuratively speaking) exploding with the nuclear power released when those traditions collide.

Here the group’s percussionists combine on “Saidi Swing”, inspired by rhythms from Upper Egypt and played on drums from India, the Middle East, Africa, and Central Asia.
