One of the very few documentaries to come out of Xinjiang

The Silk Road of Pop captures the challenges of a minority group in China. The film documents traditional musicians uncovering the age-old roots of the Uyghur music culture in Kashgar, metal bands combining local folk music & Western hard rock in wild performances, and hip-hop crews honing their skills in smoky basements.

Featuring an entrancing compilation of songs and video-clips, The Silk Road of Pop taps into the rhythmical zeitgeist of what it means to be young and Uyghur in China, showing how music becomes a liberating element for a minority trying to assert its identity within a repressive environment.
