2 June 2006

Last night I saw the amazing ‘Tengir-Too’ – folk music from the mountains of Kyrgyzstan. Gentle, magical music that got a rapturous reception from an enthusiastic audience. A well presented show with brief introductory talk, a handout giving more details about the music and the instruments and supertitles providing translations of the titles and lyrics. Tour details (including dates in Cardiff and Swansea) at http://www.rootsroundabout.co.uk/ - if you can’t catch them live I’d recommend the CD which includes a DVD and detailed booklet – it’s Volume 1 of a new series called ‘Music of Central Asia’ produced by Smithsonian Folkways and funded by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture.
