Aga Khan Music Initiative in Central Asia: March 2006 USA Tour of Via Kabul: Central Asia Without Borders


The March 2006 USA tour of Via Kabul: Central Asia Without Borders — presented and curated by the Aga Khan Music Initiative in Central Asia — features three groups of performers: Tengir-Too, from Kyrgyzstan, The Academy of Shashmaqâm, from Tajikistan, and Homayun Sakhi and Taryalai Hashimi, from Afghanistan (via California). 

All of these performers are featured on Music of Central Asia, volumes 1-3, which is being released by Smithsonian Folkways in March 2006. The innovative series, which will eventually comprise 10 volumes, includes a CD as well as a DVD featuring a documentary film on the musicians as well as interactive instrument glossaries and maps.
