It's basically a Yo Yo Ma documentary. Nothing wrong with that. But the music is not that great: it's basically a bunch of international musicians from different cultures who band together as The Silk Road Ensemble and travel the world, jamming world music. The Iranian musician's story is the most interesting. I suspect the music from each individual musician is more interesting than the final mashup of output from The Silk Road Ensemble.
