Album Review

Ethnic Minority Music of Northwest Xinjiang, China [coll] – [Sublime Frequencies]

humana   5/8/2010   CD, International

This ???collection of true, beautiful, and often technically sophisticated traditional tunes??? (liner notes) was recorded in May 2009 by Laurent Jeanneau and Shi Tanding when they traveled to Xinjiang, China, to get married. The notes describe political discomfort, but we are to focus on the musicianship and fascinating strummed and bowed instruments presented on this CD. Some tracks include singing, others are instrumental. 9 and 13 are meant to accompany dancers. All are worth trying.
