DESCRIPTION: In an unprecedented move, our store is offering the rare and famous Twelve Muqams for your viewing pleasure. The Chinese Government has realized that the sacred music of the Uyghur people is a national treasure that should be saved for generations to come and shared the world over. As a result, they have financed the recording of the Twelve Muqams to CD and VCD, and we are offering them for sale on the international market. The recording was done by the official TV and radio station in Urumuqi and is professional and enthralling. Note: This is now out of print. Once these few are sold, there will be no more in the forseeable future.
For just $260USD including shipping, you can receive the entire set of 24 CDs, almost 24 hours of music, to add to your Central Asian Collection. The set consists of 24 high-quality CDs, 2 CDs hold one complete Muqam performance by the Uyghur orchestra. They each have a running time of approximately 1 hour.
You can listen to an example of Muqam music from The Red Rose, a collection of some of the best songs from the 12 Muqam.
Experience your instrument the way it is meant to be played, listen to the rhythms and feel the power of the Muqam. This tradition has been around for centuries, and continues to this day. Many of the Muqam are surrounded by legend, such as the tale of Amannisa Khan, who eventually composed a famous muqam as the queen. They tell tales of woe-begotten lovers, stories of revenge and power, and most importantly, they serve as important conduits for the passing of religious tenets and moral lessons. Each Muqam consists of various different tunes and melodies, including dance numbers, sung poetry, and instrumental sonatas. The Muqam as a music form is something that will not be forgotten, and will undoubtedly leave you with a very favorable impression of Kashgar.
This is the list of the Muqams in the set:
Rak, Chabbayat, Sigah, Chahargah, Panjigah, Uzhal, Ajam, Uxxak, Bayat, Nawa, Muxavirak, Iraq
