Central Asian tradition goes high-voltage electric

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yulduz Usmanova is incredible. This album inspired me to "do my homework" by listening to some folk and classical music from Uzbekistan. She has been faithful to that tradition, while at the same time creating powerful rock. ("Schoch va Gado" reminds me vividly of Grace Slick and the Jefferson Airplane circa 1968, though there couldn't be a connection.)This is passionate music, but not gentle. "Tsche Mischod" might be a forlorn love ballad (wish I could understand the words!) but it radiates toughness, even fierceness. That quality is even more evident in fast-paced songs like "Jeli Jeli" or "Kisil Alma". Overall, a superb CD."
Great mix of folk and pop--done excellently.

"I listen to this cd nearly every day! And still have never gotten tired of it. It is very catching & every tune on the cd has a great "hook." It is heaped with passion and emotion. Highly recommend it! She is very unique--not really like anyone else--but great rock! WOW!"
