Kronos Quartet with Mahsa Vahdat
Music for Change: The Banned Countries

As a direct protest to the Executive Orders limiting travel to the United States by people from largely Muslim majority countries, Kronos performs a program featuring music that highlights the rich diversity of artistic voices from Muslim majority countries.

“It’s hard to imagine a time when the Kronos Quartet was not emphatically crossing musical boundaries, from its early days covering Jimi Hendrix to its most recent collaborations with Malian griots. But its latest project responds cogently to an era of increasingly policed and politicized borders.” – New York Times

“All told, [‘Music for Change: The Banned Countries’] amounts to a rich and distinctive mixtape, amplifying themes of dignity, resistance, and harmonious coexistence.” – The New Yorker
