Bukharan musicians

For more than 2,000 years, the Jews of Central Asia existed independent of other communities, and developed their own traditions. Their music draws on literary sources from Persian poetry to the Zohar.

Evan Rapport, a graduate student at the City University of New York, introduces music by Roshel Rubinov, Moghulcha-i Dugoh, Menakhem Malakov, and the husband-and-wife team of Ilyas Malayev and Muhabbat Shamayeva, from the ensemble Maqam.
