Kazakhstan Musique D’Almati/Music From Almati [coll] – [Disques VDE-Gallo]

Hemroid The Leader   1/4/2018   CD, International

kazakh dombra player

Almati/Almaty is the largest city/population center in Kazakhstan. 1.7m live there, 9% of Kazakhstan’s total population.?? Elevation 2500 feet.?? These recordings date from May 1994.
Kazakh bards bow sacred lutes, sing microtonally, strum the two or three-stringed long-necked dombra, simple-structure songs with alien timbre and mesmerizing vocal technique.
