Just a few weeks ago, the FBI finally shut down the Silk Road, the infamous online black market site where one could buy all manner of illegal contraband from around the globe. Just as worldly, but it’s moral opposite, Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble
traverses borders, just like the classic trade route, with a group of distinguished performers from over 20 countries in Asia, Europe and the Americas. The crosscultural group’s most recent recording, Off the Map, was nominated for a Grammy award; they come to town (note: without Yo-Yo Ma himself) on Tuesday, Oct. 29, for a performance at the Green Music Center. 1801 E. Cotati Ave., Rohnert Park. 7:30pm. $30—$70. 866.955.6040.
