amazon Song of Silk Road - Various Artists

Silk Road were the routes where cultures of the east and west intermingled.
Silk Road were the routes where music traveled as well.
This is especially true regarding musical instruments because there were many that originated in ancient Persia and India that were carried out to the east and west on these routes.

Most western instruments for classical music are said to have originated in or around ancient Persia. They transformed into folk instruments of western Asia before being transported west (flute, oboe, violin, tambourine, etc.)

Through the medium of the troubadours and traveling musicians who journeyed through the lands playing their instruments and through the medium of the court music that originated in the cities built around the oasis, the music became layered in the histories and cultures of various lands and were spread far and wide. (The nomads played a large role in this.)
Surprisingly, musical production had been already established for performers to play for the imperial court. Commerce involving musicians had already come into play.

A history of a few thousand years behind the roads of a few thousand kilos and the role it has played in historyÉthese really astound the imagination.
The pieces recorded in this album are a selection from the Pacific Moon label whose motto has been over the years to unite the east and west and to create a collaboration of Asian and western musical instruments. You may say creating music on the them of the Silk Road is our specialty.

Why not listen to the album and soak yourself in the eternal romance of the Silk Road?
