Silk Road 2011

In November & December 2011 I headed to China to tour the historic Silk Road that Marco Polo made famous centuries ago; the major trade route of the ancient world. Accompanied by the finest US musicians and generic levitra online pharmacy humans you could meet, “The Village” toured from Hohhot to Urumqi, stopping to i recommend generic viagra from india perform and collaborate all along the way with only the goal of building bridges and dissolving difference by communing in good music. Supported by the US Embassy and the Chinese International Center for Exchange, we performed extensively at schools, universities & theaters, and spontaneously on city walls and in town squares all across China’s “Wild West”. We also collaborated with amazing local musicians all along the route including Han Chinese, Mongolian, Tibetan, Hui and Uyghur musicians. With 12 videos (2 on National Geographic World Music), photo albums for every stop, and a map of gay viagra'>gay viagra our route along the Silk Road, we invite you to join us on look here 100 mg levitra the journey right here!
