EXCLUSIVE: The Toronto Film Festival commences today and we’ve got a clip from Oscar winner Morgan Neville’s (20 Feet From Stardom) documentary The Music Of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma And The Silk Road EnsembleThe docu is set to premiere as part of TIFF Docs on Sunday and follows acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma as he sets out to create a wholly international music collective though his group, The Silk Road Ensemble. The group of master musicians from diverse countries was formed to collaborate, educate, and connect with people beyond their geographic scope.

The project took on greater meaning after September 11, 2001 as a way to foster dialogue across cultures. Although a seemingly daunting task, the audience will see the palpable results of the ensembles efforts: The clip features a jam session with Ma; Galicia’s Cristina Pato, known as the Jimi Hendrix of gaita bagpipes; Iran’s Kayhan Kalhor, a master of the kamancheh fiddle; and China’s Wu Man, a virtuoso on the lute-like pipa. The documentary is exec produced by Diane Weyermann, Laura Freid, Jeff Skoll, Cristin Canterbury Bagnall, and Julie Goldman with Caitrin Rogers serving a producer.

Along with The Music Of Strangers, Neville’s Keith Richards: Under The Influence, will also be world premiering at the fest with a Netflix release to follow.
