uyghur dance teaching

£20 Make an enquiry

The far eastern part of Central Asia, the Sin Jiang province of western China, we find dance forms similar to Uzbek and Tajik. Since ancient times in China, ethnic minorities such as the Uyghur, Mongol and Miao have been respected for their skills in the art of dance and music. Uyghurs today refer to this area as East Turkistan. As far back as the 21st century B.C., tribal dances from border regions were witnessed at the court of the emperor. "The Music from Distant Regions" became a common facet of the palace artistic activities through the centuries.

The makam music and dance system is at least 500 years old, and according to Uyghur sources, the 12 makamat are more than 1,300 years old. The Tulan Makam or Daolang Makam, tulan meaning "crowd" in ancient Uyghur, is popular in the southern area of Sin Jiang province.
