Summary
"Falak, (literally 'sky' or 'destiny') is a characteristic musical genre of the rural mountain regions of Tajikistan in Central Asia. Falak songs 'cry to the sky' of the transient nature of life and separation from loved ones induced by a perceived inescapable fate. Tajik mountain music also comprises folk, dance and wedding songs, as well as a tradition of epic singing and settings of Persian classical poems. This double CD highlights the crossover the continuity and change between rural and urban, traditional and modern, old and new, and includes exciting contemporary popular and symphonic music. Whether rooted in local practices or borrowed from elsewhere, all these musical expressions belong ultimately to the Tajik people and forma fertile musical world with a distinctive Tajik character" -- Publisher's description
