The mission of Silkroad's Global Musician Workshop (GMW) is to foster a community of globally minded musicians engaged in learning from one another’s traditions and incorporating them into their own artistic voices. An all-star artist-faculty will teach styles of music from across the world. GMW is directed by Silk Road Ensemble cellist Mike Block.
GMW will be taught by an all-star faculty representing a wide range of backgrounds and cultures, including Sandeep Das (Indian tabla), Abigail Washburn (Banjo/Vocals mixing American/Chinese styles), Hadi Eldebek (Arabic oud), Gamin (Korean wind instruments), Maeve Gilchrist (Celtic harp/vocals), Bruce Molsky (Old-time Appalachian fiddle), Balla Kouyate (Malian balafon), Edward Perez (Afro-Latin bass), Shane Shanahan (world percussion), and GMW Director Mike Block (multi-style strings).
