    Hi Fausto, thank you for this. But when can we expect the full release as you promised some years ago, my friend?:)

    Dear Fausto, I just downloaded these clips, and can’t wait to make my CDs from these files. I am so proud of you and I can’t still believe I am listening to the real voice of my people who I love so much as if they are next to me singing…It’s such an amazing feeling to be able to hear so very real voice of my people from thousands of miles away from home.
    I especially like the field recording you did, and I can only say “thank you” for your impressive work which is so precious for us and the future generations of Uyghurs. I am not sure if my children will be lucky enough to listen to those original music from those folk singers since most of them are older singers, but at least I will give them these beautiful recordings from you…

    Rather amazing!
    Found this page because I was looking for information on Uyghurs.
    Going to an Uyghur Restaurant in the Netherlands today.
