FEATURES FOR THE WEEK
YO-YO MA AND THE SILK ROAD ENSEMBLE: GLOBAL HORIZONS Acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma talks about his latest journeys
east with the Silk Road Ensemble. In a time of global conflict,
Ma is seeking a unifying strain that reaches into the collective
consciousness and flowers in the musical communion of the Silk
Road Ensemble, a band that gathers musicians and composers from

second album, SILK ROAD JOURNEYS: BEYOND THE HORIZON (Sony Classical),

ECHOES JUNE CD OF THE MONTH
PEPPINO D'AGOSTINO AND STEF BURNS: BAYSHORE ROAD Peppino D'Agostino is an Italian-born finger-style acoustic

MARK ISHAM: CRASHING IN AMBIENCE Mark Isham began his film composing career in a small, backroom
apartment near San Francisco where he wrote the electronic score
to NEVER CRY WOLF, almost all on one synthesizer. A quarter century

orchestral scores for A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT, THE MAJESTIC and
MIRACLE. But Isham metaphorically returns to the back room apartment
for the haunting, dream-like ambient soundtrack to Paul Haggis's
acclaimed film, CRASH. We talk to Isham about his powerful score.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH DOUG WOOD Doug Wood is a journeyman guitarist living in Cleveland who
has been making a pastoral brand of acoustic guitar music that's
edged by a post-Michael Hedges sensibility. Doug Wood comes into
the Echoes Living Room to play music live from his CDs, I AM KIROC
