Bob Studebaker explores the Sun Gate with Silk Screen founder Harish Saluja.
“In ancient times The Silk Road was a series of trade routes linking east and west. Sun Gate was one of two westernmost stops before leaving China. It is also the name of a CD recorded as part of a unique musical collaboration, which merges ancient Asian melodies with jazz.
The producers feel the collaboration is emblematic of Pittsburgh’s growing diversity.
Harish Saluja, who is the founder of the cultural organization known as Silk Screen, assembled musicians familiar with both traditions and oversaw the process of growth within the band Silk Sound.”
