The Silk Road

The Silk Road is one of the most significant achievements in the history of civilizations. Not only the commercial Silk Road circulated along the great Silk Road, but also the cultures of the people, spiritual values, religious ideas. Silk has been one of the ways around which the relationship between the peoples of the East and West has revolved, and through silk there has been a technological, economic, artistic and cultural communication between geographical areas far away, becoming a way of transmission of knowledge, exchange of cultures and customs. It has also built us, making us more aware of our pluricultural past, of which Islam was also part of fundamental contributions, among which we must highlight the introduction of the silk industry in the European continent.

Recreating this musical journey along the Silk Road is an exciting task that can only be done from the humility that promotes such greatness and musical diversity. More than 7,000 kilometers of cultures, music and traditions, from the Chinese capital of Xi "an, at its eastern end, to the Mediterranean and Valencia, city of the Silk Llotja. The journey of cultural diversity, which becomes History of the musical tradition of humanity, begins in the country of silk, Serinda, to the Far East, Constantinople, capital of the Byzantine Empire.
