Album Notes
These are recordings from 1995 and 1997 in Israel, of a group of Jewish musicians from Uzbekistan and Tadjikistan who moved to Israel in the early 90’s. The group’s founder and musical director, Suleyman Takhalov, is teaching at the Music Department of Bar Ilan University and the Jerusalem Academy of Music. He has been involved in a number of musical projects in his home country of Uzbekistan, and continues to pursue his musical interests in Israel. This recording documents his first ensemble in Israel, and will be released soon. Takhalov and the other musicians in this ensemble all had extensive musical education and involvement in the traditional music shared by Uzbekistan and Tadjikistan, and were highly regarded as representatives of this tradition.
The following comments are the words of Dr. Razia Sultanova who is a distinguished Uzbeki Musicologist specializing in the music of Central Asia. She teaches at the Music Department of the University of London, England.
I felt such a nostalgia after listening to it! Great CD, indeed! Well done!
Shame I didn't know about it before:I've just completed an article for the Rough Guide where all CDs related to Central Asian music were mentioned. I wish I had your CD before I sent it off."
