"Kurash Sultan was a prolific and versatile musician, an excellent performer on several traditional Uyghur instruments, as well as on the accordion. However, this CD focuses mainly on Kurash as a singer and dutar player, the artistic role he evidently had the strongest personal attachment to. Also, the dutar and its tradition stands out as an emblem of Eastern Turkestani and Uyghur cultural identity. It is used in the urban muqam ensembles as well as in rural folk singing. It is the most widespread instrument found in the home, among the Uyghurs. Kurash Sultan was only seven years old when he made his first acquaintance with the instrument." Artist includes: Kurash Sultan, dutar, vocals.
