International Conference and Concert on Musical Geographies of Central Asia

Venue: London (UK)
Period: May 16-18, 2012


The Institute for Musical Research, University of London, in association with the School of Oriental and African Studies and the Aga Khan Music Initiative, presents an International Conference and Concert on Musical Geographies of Central Asia.  This conference will aim to locate distinctive regional, cross-regional, national and transnational music practices, styles, genres and sounds within their geo-cultural, ideological and political environments. The main countries of reference will be the former Soviet Central Asian states, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, the Russian Republic of Tuva, Mongolia, the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of China, and Afghanistan. Finally this conference will examine the intersection of musical regionalism with long-standing clan allegiances and social hierarchies, shifting political alliances, ideological and cultural flows.
