Masq-e Javanan

Masq-e Javanan

This young virtuoso of the dutar, Sirajoddin Juraev, has composed a brilliant piece inspired by traditional songs of Khojand (Tajikistan), his place of origin. While untraditional in the sense that the melody does not adhere to maqam scales, the rhythm and style reflect the nomadic character of the dutar. (During, Levin 2001)
