Music for Change: The Banned Countries

Listen to Kronos Quartet.

In a potent and poignant artistic response to the 2017 executive orders limiting travel to the United States by people from largely Muslim-majority countries, the GRAMMY-winning Kronos Quartet performs works by composers from the original seven “banned countries”: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. The repertoire will include signature Kronos works, new compositions from Kronos’ Fifty for the Future commissioning project, and more.

On the inspiration for the project, Kronos founder, artistic director, and violinist David Harrington said, “Increasingly, I feel my role as an artist is to point in constructive musical and cultural directions as we attempt to help repair the torn fabric of our society.”
