Here we present another wonderful MP3-CD from the collection of our dear friend Danny, containing famous singers from Bukhara, basicly trained in Shashmaqam, all from the Jewish community of Bukhara. The CD contains five folders:
1. The Family of Babakhanovs: Levi Babakhanov (1873-1926) and his son Moshe Babakhanov (1910-1983). There grandson and son Ari Babakhanov (born 1934) is today the most famous and most authentic interpreter of the Shashmaqam. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ari_Babakhanov. There is a wonderful CD by him and his ensemble, first published in 1999 on the Dutch label New Samarkand Records, later republished by Pan Records. It is available from firstname.lastname@example.org. We will post soon a cassette by him.
2. Barno Isxakova (Ishakova). We posted recently a MP3-CD by her here. The material here seems to be more or less completely also on that MP3-CD.
3. Berta Davidova. We posted a MP3-CD by her here. The material here seems to be more or less completely also on that MP3-CD.
4. Gabriel Mullaqandov, a great Bukharian Shashmaqam singer.
5. Boris Namateyev (Namatiev), a well-known Shashmaqam singer, who lived in Dushambe, Tajikistan.
