The Silk Road: A Musical Caravan

Album The Silk Road: A Musical Caravan

Developed in the feudal courts of 18th-century Bukhara, shashmaqâm combines a variety of music and poetry from Islamic sources. It illustrates the cross-cultural fertility created by the trade routes, often called the "silk road," as many well-known performers of it are of Bukharan-Persian-Jewish extraction. This piece is a refined court piece, sung by Barno Is’hakova, a woman born in Tashkent of Jewish parents from Samarkand. (During, Levin 2001)
