During the Cold War, traditional Central Asian music was at risk of disappearing due to political pressures. Now, musicians like the Central Asian artists performing in the upcoming virtual concert are bringing back this musical heritage. The evening will include half a dozen short musical selections, along with a discussion by Professor Ted Levin of Dartmouth College and Professor Münir Beken of UCLA. And on the same evening, a virtual exhibition of traditional musical instruments from the region will launch on the Wende Museum’s website.
