  • $1699


In these exuberant recordings, pipa master Wu Man and her Uyghur, Tajik, and Hui collaborators explore connections between the musical worlds of China and Central Asia. Featuring the stirring vocals of Sanubar Tursun and Abdulla Majnun along with newly arranged and composed instrumental pieces, Borderlands is a masterful blending of kindred traditions. 14 tracks, 72 minutes, 48-page color booklet, and photos; bonus DVD contains series introduction, 2 documentary films, interactive glossary, and map.

The Music of Central Asia series is a co-production of the Aga Khan Music Initiative in Central Asia, a program of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, and Smithsonian Folkways Recordings. The partnership seeks to revitalize and assure the onward transmission of musical traditions in regions where they are endangered, and to cultivate the creative processes that lead to artistic innovation and evolution. This groundbreaking series began in 2006 with Vols. 13, followed with Vols. 46 in 2007 and Vols. 79 in 2010. Vol. 10 is the final volume of the series.
