WU MAN "Music Of Central Asia Vol.10 - Borderlands"

This album called Borderlands is a blend I've never heard before; Pipa played by the master of it's instrument Wu Man with Muslim Uyghur musicians from Northern China. This album is an historic collaboration between two different cultures living in the same big country of China. I have a big respect for the Smithsonian Folkways record label. For years they recorded people's music, deep in their countries, all around the globe.

Favorite tracks in order:
  • Shadiana (Celebration)
  • Kurt Naxshisi (Song of the Kurds)
  • Hanleylun
