Ochilxon Otaxanov - Another great Master of Maqam Music from Uzbekistan

Here for the listening pleasure of the few enthusiastic visitors of our Uzbek posts another great master of the Maqam music of Uzbekistan. I guess he belongs - like Orifxon Xatamov - to the Maqam tradition of the Ferghana Valley. I downloaded these (and many more) recordings a while ago from some Uzbek websites and put them for myself on CDs. Here we offer one of these CDs. These recordings are probably from the 1960s, 1970s or 1980s and were probably published originally as Melodiya LPs during Sowjet times. The cover picture above does not correspond to the content. If I remember right I downloaded the picture about 10 years ago and it looks like the cover of a cassette.

Thanks very much for these rare recordings. Here's my offering to Uzbek music on the we: a concert by Monayat Yutcheva in Paris 1999.

Thank you for this one, Tawfiq! Great to hear 'old standards' like Etmasmidim & Ey Falak in his versions, plus some songs I've never heard before. He IS good!!

(Thanks also to Bosmart for Munojot - lovely to hear.)

Another devotee of this music. Not that easy fir me to listen to more of it and by a greater diversity of performers. So your posts are truly valuable and enjoyable.

Heartfelt thanks!
