Asia-based and London-born, music collective Yeti Out has recently unveiled their latest project: Silk Road Sounds Vol. 1, a compilation album eponymously named after their new record label. The reference to Silk Road is meant to embody the album and label’s core mission of facilitating an exchange between different cultures, much like how the ancient trade route linked Asia with Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. But instead of peddling fabric and spices, Yeti Out founders Arthur Bray, Erisen Ali, and Tom Bray are eager to build cross-cultural relations by wielding the universal language of music.
