This is a live recording of a concert held at Tokyo Bunka Kaikan in 1979, featuring Uyghur hand drum player/vocalist Wubuli Kasaimu and female singer Buniyazi. Uyghur hand drum player/vocalist Wubuli Kasaimu and female singer Buniyazi, and Bengali folk songs performed by Loka Bharati Band from India. The Uyghurs are an autonomous region of China, but they have a different culture, their language is Turkic and most of them are Muslims. When listening to the rhythmic beats of hand drums, the two-stringed instrument called dotar tuned in perfect fourth degree, and the paired singing by men and women, one can sense elements of both Eastern European folk music such as Bulgarian and Central Asian folk music. On the other hand, the Bengali folk songs have been handed down from generation to generation in a unique way, and you will be able to enjoy the relaxed singing of the female vocalists, the mixed chorus of men and women, the soft sound of the harmonium, and the rhythmic chorus of the Bhartiyaris.
