Inspired by the exchange of ideas and traditions along the historical Silk Road, cellist Yo-Yo Ma ’76 established Silkroad in 1998 to explore how the arts can advance global understanding. Since 2000, the Silk Road Ensemble has been at the core of Silkroad’s work to connect the world through the arts, presenting musical performances and learning programs, and fostering radical cultural collaboration around the world. 

Silkroad has been affiliated with Harvard University since 2005, with offices on Harvard’s Allston campus since 2010. At the University, Silkroad encourages dialogue among artists and musicians, educators, and entrepreneurs. Through mentorships and workshops, Silkroad acts as a working laboratory at the intersection of the arts and academics, collaborating across disciplines with Harvard faculty and students.
