Silk Road Tour

In late 2011 I went on a U.S. Embassy-sponsored Silk Road Tour with banjo songstress Abigail Washburn and her band The Village. I did a series of behind the scenes videos, including this one, a collaboration with some Tibetan students in Xi’ning, Qinghai Province, China. This also includes footage from the Kumbum Monastery, originally built in the 14th century.

To watch the rest of videos check out the Silk Road Tour youtube playlist. Below are a few photos from Hohot and Urumqi.
