London Uyghur Ensemble

Born in East Turkistan – or The Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in Central Asia – singer Rahimä Mahmut has managed to preserve her traditional culture in London through the creation of the London Uyghur Ensemble.

In East Turkistan, Rahimä found singing difficult and her creativity restricted. Having learnt initially from her parents, she began to sing seriously in competitions at university. ‘I remember once… I was very lucky that I was given the chance [to sing]… but I was not fortunate enough to sing my own song…” Now in the UK, Rahimä and the rest of the Ensemble perform the classical Mokam music of the region – listed by UNESCO as an ‘internationally-recognised intangible cultural heritage’. In addition to this, they also perform Uyghur rural folk tunes, particularly that of the Ili Valley.

Another member of the Ensemble, Nizamidin Sametov is from Kyrgyzstan Nizamidin brings to the Ensemble what he has learnt from senior Kyrgyz musicians on daf frame drum‚ dutar and the long–necked tämbur lute. He now works with Rahimä and British artists Stephen Jones on ghijak and Rachel Harris on dutar to promote the Uyghur tradition. There are plans to experiment further: “We are planning to do more”, Rahimä says, “to work together, to create some more pieces, to combine the traditional and the current, maybe do some pop together…” The London Uyghur Ensemble has performed at a variety of locations, from community centres to the Southbank centre and abroad. The group play their songs to make the world aware of Uyghur identity and existence. They hope their music can be a voice that speaks about Uyghur culture and experience in the UK. “I feel very, very fortunate because I have my voice,’ says Rahimä, ‘I have my passion… so with it, at least, people can understand Uyghur”.

The sentence below needs some correction:

"learnt from senior Kyrgyz musicians on daf frame drum‚ dutar and the long–necked tämbur lute"

I do not think Nizamidin Sametov learnt DAP, DUTAR and TANBUR from a senior Kyrgyz musician, BUT from UYGHUR musicians in Kyrgyzstan. DAP, DUTAR and TANBUR are instrument of Uyghurs and I do not think there are Kyrgyz musicians who can play these instrument well and at the level of teaching others.

Yes, you are right but it seems that the London Cultural co-operation made a mistake or probably because of they have not enough knowledge about Uyghurs background, just simply omitted the word "Uyghur" between the following words "Kyrgyz musicians". It should be fine if said "learnt from senior Kyrgyz Uyghur musicians....” If you are really care about this, its better write them a complaint letter. Here is the London Cultural co-operation's email:
