"But a lot of young people are studying at the conservatory [in Tashkent, capital of Uzbekistan] in the traditional singing department. In Communist times, you could count on your fingers the number of people who studied traditional music. Now there’s a large contingent, and among them are some fine musicians. If they continue to find inspiration, I firmly believe that our traditions will not die." Generations of Uzbek and Tajik singer-songwriters bequeathed a remarkable legacy of lyrical ballads, devotional songs, and instrumental pieces to the gifted contemporary master-musicians who perform on these tracks. Rooted in the sophisticated urban song traditions of Bukhara, Samarkand, Tashkent, Qoqand, and Khiva, these popular classics come alive in superbly recorded new performances. A bonus DVD introduces some of the musical heirs to the rich tradition of lyrical art song and instrumental music from the great cities of Central Asia. 15 Tracks, 73 Minutes, 48-page Booklet, photos; DVD contains series introduction, 27-minute film, interactive glossary, and map. The Music of Central Asia Series is a co-production of the Aga Khan Music Initiative and Smithsonian Folkways Recordings. The aim of the series is to present leading exponents of Central Asia's rich and diverse musical heritage to listeners outside the region.
