This album showcases the world-renowned muqam of the Uyghur Dolan from Makit County of Xinjiang. The muqam of the Dolan are the heritage of the Dolan¡¦s hunting culture and way of life. A folk art with unique characteristics of the Dolan people, the Dolan Muqam, like its relatives, also embrace elements of Uyghur literature, music, dance and folk tradition. But the tunes and lyrics are very much their own and without much contamination from other regional muqam or folk music. The Dolan muqam differ from others in their rhythmic patterns and their use of powerful and dynamic drumming. Performers display high degree of individualism by following different melodic patterns but nevertheless achieve a unique heterophonic and heterorhythmic harmony.

The Musical Instruments of the Dolan Muqam
The instruments used in the Dolan muqam include the qalun (a plucked dulcimer), a Dolan rawap (a plucked lute), a Dolan ghijek (a bowed fiddle), and three types ¡V high-pitched, middle-pitched and low-pitched ¡V of dap (or frame drum). A Dolan muqam performance begins with an overture by the qalun, the Dolan rawap and the Dolan ghijek, with each playing its own melody and with a leading musician singing on a different tune and pitch at the same time. Although the instruments and vocals follow different melodic patterns, they work in unison, creating a unique heterophonic and heterorhythmic harmony.
