SOAS Concert Series: London Uyghur Ensemble

This concert will feature the entrancing songs and instrumental music of the Central Asian Uyghurs. Singer Rahima is accompanied by an ensemble of long-necked lutes, spike fiddle and frame drum. Deeply imbued by the Sufi ethos, with its limping rhythms and ecstatic poetry this easternmost example of maqam traditions will open the doors to a new musical world.
