ABOUT THESE VIDEOS
Another bit of the same Makit dolan group from the earlier clip, this one is a bit clearer visually.
Again, here is a case my video was silent – the audio doesn’t sync at all as it’s from a different song recorded minutes earlier of later – but you get the idea.
This meshrep was under way at the Amannisa Khan park in Yarkand. The audio was actually recorded a month earlier when I’d visited the same spot before and attached to this silent clip here for context. Farmer folk, young and old, mostly (though not exclusively) men were getting in on the fun. My understanding is that this is a regular occurence in the summer at this spot.
