Vocalist - Rahima Mahmut
The traditional music and dance of the Central Asian Uyghurs: thrilling vocals are accompanied by long-necked lutes, spike fiddle and frame drum. This easternmost example of maq?m, with its ‘limping’ rhythms and ecstatic poetry, is deeply imbued with the Sufi ethos.
The Thursday lunchtime concerts are part of the Walter Carroll Lunchtime Concert Series, which is supported by the Ida Carroll Trust. They provide a wide-ranging programme to suit all tastes and are an ideal opportunity to enjoy great music performed by outstanding musicians. There's no need to book, the concerts are free and you can just turn up on the day.
