Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Yulduz Usmanova is from Uzbekistan, along the fabled Silk Road trade route in Central Asia. Her singing is a fusion of intricately coded styles, which includes borrowings from Turkish and Persian rhythms and scales. She is accompanied by the tanbur (a long-necked lute) and the doira (a hand drum) but often wields a wicked backbeat and sees no reason why she should not use the latest electronic percussion and synthesizers. She is a folk singer and a club diva, a Moslem woman who wears miniskirts and was elected to her country's parliament, and an international figure who resides in a rural area outside of Tashkent. Her elders admire her espousal of endangered folkways while young girls, emerging from the dual oppressions of Soviet life and religious fundamentalism, cherish her as a role model. Yulduz is a bundle of contradictions but knows exactly who she is. --Christina Roden

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellento! January 27, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I was at the Borders bookstore in my own world, looking for a few books, when something just turned my world upside down. It was the background music being played in the music section of the bookstore. I requested the store to get me the CD and unfortunately they never had another copy. The song being played was Dunya Dunya...Yulduz has a gifted voice. The depth, the passion, the serenity, the calmness, the rise and fall, the vivaciousness, the vigor and the sadness at times can easily drive a peaceful person into the realm of complete tranquility and desire. In short, I was immensely moved by her album. I cannot point out one number from any of her albums. Each song brings a different mood as well as sentiment with it. It's a pure delight to listen to a young woman who holds in her so many different facets of life and is able to express all of them in such an effective and beautiful manner. I was thankful to God for making me run into her heavenly voice and songs. I would strongly recommend her CDs. Lastly, I must mention that a singer or an artist must be judged by their talent in that area and not by the choices they make and have made in life. It's unfair to judge them otherwise. The last reviewer's comments made me write my sentiments on this matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yulduzka has the potential that not many people do. October 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Yulduz Usmanova is the best singer. I do not only admire her talents but also her personality. When i read the negative reviews about her personality, from Philadelfia i wondered who knows her personally so well there. Yes, i know she has a capricious personality and it is nothing for her to yell at some of her coworkers if she doesn't like something they do... i have been the evident of that many times in her concerts.
BUT, show me a perfect person?! Each one of us- human beings have both our pluses and minuses, and nobody, nothing is perfect. If you would know how much help and support she gives to others who need it, you would not think the way you do. Watch the "Azizim" show, by Yoshlar and you will see her worm heart, and even cry yourself. Many people dislike her because she tells the truth and is honest, maybe.
I admire her for her VERY big potential!!! She was born and grew up in a village, in a Muslim country, and proved everyone that it is possible to succeed, no matter what your background is. I grew up with listening to her every day. Now, i cannot imagine even a day without listening or at least mumbling her songs, that always make me think! As long as you understand the Uzbek language!!! Also I admire her patriotism towards her Motherland. It was obvious from her songs to understand that she is a potential politician. As for me, she is the BEST and the uniquest. There is noone who is similar, who has the same style. As for her personal life, God has given us success in one part of our lives, and has not, in another. NO matter what happened to her she never stopped, and never gave up. And that is how she achieved the success! I love you YULDUZ USMONOVA! You really have done a lot for Uzbekistan! I hope to hear you sing at my wedding:) !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exotic and accessible world music May 28, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Usmanova has a very distinct and entrancing style. It is probably not like anything you have heard unless you are very involved with Middle Eastern music. It is more authentic than say, Alabina, and yet the complex rhythms and exciting vocals are entirely enjoyable to western ears. Highly recommended. Five camels!
