Mountains Of Tongues Musical Dialects Of The Caucasus

Mountains Of Tongues
Musical Dialects Of The Caucasus


Precious recordings full of wonder, grit and beauty by more than fifty musicians Armenians, Azerbaijanis, Georgians, Chechens, and smaller groupings which don't fit national grids, like Azeris from Georgia, Kurds from Tbilisi, Avars and Lezgis from Azerbaijan, Molokans taken between 2012-13 throughout the borderlands of Europe and Asia, between the Caspian and Black Seas, where so many languages and traditions are tipping into extinction. Songs in Lezgi and Batsbi... instruments like the Tushetian chianuri, of which there are only two, and the agach komuz from Dagestan...
