  • Description

    Recorded before the recent violence and conflagration in Bosnia-Herzegovina, these beautiful examples of Muslim traditions document the rich confluence of Turkish and European music in the region. Compiled from commercial and field recordings, these are indeed echoes of an endangered world—many have been killed by war and most of the population displaced by it. Artists' royalties from this recording support humanitarian aid in the region. 49 minutes. "Here East meets West harmoniously—but only in music." —Newsweek
