"Working with Kronos [America's premier new music quartet], I realized that through music you can cross not only boundaries between different regions of Afghanistan, but even bigger boundaries, such as between East and West," reveals Homayun Sakhi. "When we play together, the music really connects well and we all get a lot of pleasure from it." A bold collaboration between America's premier new music quartet, Azerbaijan's best-loved traditional singer, and the leading Afghan rubâb player of his generation. Featured works include Homayun Sakhi's luminous "Rainbow," for string quartet, rubâb, tabla, and Central Asian percussion, and spirited arrangements of Azerbaijani songs performed by Kronos Quartet and the Alim Qasimov Ensemble. 6 Tracks, 63 Minutes, 42-pg Booklet.
The Music of Central Asia Series is a co-production of the Aga Khan Music Initiative and Smithsonian Folkways Recordings. The aim of the series is to present leading exponents of Central Asia's rich and diverse musical heritage to listeners outside the region.
