In Music for Change, the Grammy Award-winning Kronos Quartet explores musical traditions and soundscapes with music from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. Featuring Iranian vocalist, Mahsa Vahdat, the program highlights the rich diversity of artistic voices from these Muslim majority countries.
“My goal for Kronos has always been to be a revolutionary force,” says Kronos Quartet Artistic Director David Harrington, “not just in making music, but in exploring the ways that music can increase our understanding of our times and our connection to people around the world.”

“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
