For more than 40 years, San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet has embodied a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to continually reimagine the string quartet experience. As a direct protest to the 2017 Executive Orders limiting travel to the United States, Music for Change highlights the rich diversity of artistic voices from Muslim majority countries. Joined by Persian singer Mahsa Vahdat, the Grammy® Award-winning ensemble performs a new program featuring music from the original seven "banned countries" – Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
