Orif Alimakhsumov - So'lim - MP3-CD from Uzbekistan

Here the next MP3-CD from Uzbekistan. This time we present Orif Alimakhsumov (also transcribed as Orif Alimaxsumov), another well-known Shashmaqam singer. He was one of the singers in the legendary complete Shashmaqam of Bukhara under the direction of Yunus Rajabi, recorded between 1960 and 1962. See our post: Shashmaqam of Bukhara - Box of 16 LPs.
He is also considered to be a master of the Maqom of the Ferghana Valley. For more information see below the links to two articles about the history of these musical traditions.
On this MP3-CD are contained three folders called CD 1 etc. We keep this division into 3 CDs and they can be downloaded separately.

Many thanks again to Danny for sharing these recordings.
