World renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma will release his latest album “Sing Me Home” on April 22. The album includes performances by Ma the Silk Road Ensemble and is the musical companion to the documentary film “The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble” that tells the story of the ensemble and will be released in theaters in June.

Watch a sneak peek here of “Going Home,” which features a duet sung in Chinese and English by Silk Road Ensemble member, Wu Tong, and Grammy-winning folk singer Abigail Washburn.

Produced by Kevin Killen and ensemble member Johnny Gandelsman, the album explores the “ever-changing idea of home” Sony Music said in a press release. The music includes original and traditional arrangements by the global artists that are part of the ensemble.

Composers of each song explored the concept of the “music of home” using their unique experiences and heritage from the Balkans, China, Galicia, India, Iran, Ireland, Japan, Mali, people of the Roma, Syria, and the United States.

“Throughout the Silk Road Ensemble’s travels and performances, we have come to understand the wealth of creative potential that exists when cultures intersect,” Yo-Yo Ma said through a press release. “The music composed, arranged, and performed by Ensemble members for Sing Me Home demonstrates the power of curiosity, evolving tradition, and cultural exchange.”
