Synopsis

Caravan to America Living Arts of the Silk Road by John (University of Hull) Major, Mr John S Major, Betty J, PH.D. Belanus, Betty J, PH.D. Belanus

This summer the cellist Yo-Yo Ma highlights a year devoted to his Silk Road Project at the spectacular National Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C. Through exhibits, concerts, and lectures, the festival celebrates the arts, crafts, and music of the lands along the ancient trade route. Through telling interviews, lavish color photos, and intriguing sidebars, this book captures all the vitality of the project, honoring cultural traditions that flourish along the Silk Road and the ways they are affirmed or altered in America. Young readers sample recipes with a Persian cook, dodge the moves of a Korean martial artist, and pluck the strings of a Greek oud, the ancestor of the lute and guitar.
