A beautiful documentary @1000thoughtsdoc about the @kronos_quartet narrated live and soundtracked live by the Kronos Quartet itself. Hearing Philip Glass performed live is by far one of the most memorable experiences in my life 😭😍 #KronosQuartet

Thank you to everyone who came out to @hollandfestival to see us perform @trevorpaglen's "Sight Machine" and "Ladilikan" with Trio Da Kali (pictured), and who joined us for "Kronos Sessions" with @mahsa_vahdat, @jherekbischoff, @ragazze_quartet, @ebonitsaxophonequartet and so many more musical friends!

We are honored to take part in the Diamond Jubilee celebration of His Highness the Aga Khan at the @royalalberthall in London on June 20th. This month and next, @theismaili Muslim Community is commemorating 60 years since the Aga Khan became the 49th hereditary Imam of the Shia Ismaili Muslims on July 11, 1957. Produced by the Ismaili Centre, London, @agakhanmusicinitiative (AKMI), and @seriouslivemusic, "Jubilee! with Kronos Quartet, Bassekou Kouyaté and AKMI Masters" will celebrate the diversity, richness and vitality of Muslim musical heritage in a contemporary expression.

We are thrilled to share the stage with so many incredible musicians, including Malian ngoni player Bassekou Kouyaté, Chinese pipa player Wu Man, Afghan rubab player Homayoun Sakhi, Syrian duclar player Basel Rajoub, Afghan percussionist Salar Nader, Tajikistani dutar, tanbur and sato performer Sirojiddin Juraev, Syria qanun player Feras Charestan, Uzbekistani percussionist Abbos Kosimov, and Italian frame drummer Andrea Piccioni. Tickets still available, but going quickly (link in bio). The Aga Khan Music Initiative and Kronos’ decade-long partnership has fostered many of our collaborations with leading musicians from Muslim-majority countries, including Homayoun Sakhi, the Alim Qasimov Ensemble, Trio Da Kali and, most recently, Sirojiddin Juraev (with frequent collaborator Wu Man).

See you this summer? Link in bio for details.
