Music of the Russian Middle East

This collection of music from Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Uzbekistan is the culmination of many centuries of musical practice and custom. Music of the Russian Middle East focuses on one of the most prominent features of this region’s music - its unique vocal tradition. While instruments play a vital role in the music of Central Asia, this album highlights the distinctive talents of singers as heard on the intensely powerful “Katar and Tesnif,” from the mountains of Azerbaijan.
