Silkroad works with museums to bridge tradition and artistic form, bringing musical performance and workshops to museum visitors and local communities.

Since its founding, Silkroad has been in residence at museums around the world, from the American Museum of Natural History in New York to the Reitberg Museum in Zurich and the Nara National Museum in Japan. Most recently, Silkroad artists have worked in the Boston Children’s Museum, the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto, and at the Getty Center in Los Angeles.
