Shashmaqam

by Bukharan Jewish Ensemble N.Y.
 
A wide variety of passionate music by expatriate members of the Central Asian city of Bukhara mixes a dramatic Hassidic vocal style with Indian and Islamic instrumentals. It's an intriguing collection of ancient folksongs, ghazals (allegorical love poems), wedding songs, instrumentals, and more from the Jewish repertoire of this fertile region. ~ Myles Boisen & Bob
