By Christopher Culver TOP 1000 REVIEWER on September 4, 2015
Format: Audio CD
In the late 1990s and the turn of the millennium, Sevara Nazarkhan rose to become one of the biggest pop stars in Uzbekistan and even made a splash in the West with her Real World label releases Yol Bolsin and Sen. However, earlier in her youth she had trained in Uzbek traditional music, and some listeners wished that that heritage had a more prominent place in her music instead of the same "World Music" generic synthesizer loops and beats that sound like they could have come from anywhere.

Well, in 2011 such listeners got what they wanted with TORTADUR, an entirely acoustic album where Nezarkhan sings folk material over traditional instruments like the dutar and tanbour (two kinds of lutes), the ney (a wooden flute) and the qanun (a type of zither). The music of the Central Asian region of Transoxiana, which encompasses Uzbekistan as well as bits of neighbouring countries, has a very distinctive sound based on modal writing and the "limping" aksak rhythm. From the opening "Qoshchinor" one is impressed by her versatile singing, from a tragic, breathy tone to passionate heights of emotion. The presence of male backing vocals on "Galdir Talqinchasi", more distantly miked than Sevara's, is a nice touch.

From the other reviews, it seems that some listeners may feel that all the material here is samey, but I found there’s enough variety to make the album enjoyable straight through. And indeed, two tracks are outside any kind of mold established by the others.

Sevara is an Uzbek artist. This album I would say would be the real deal for those who loves oriental music! My favourite track is Tortadur.Very addictive track! Although I may not understand any words she sang, I must say it is expressed beautifully! It is such a delight to my ears! Definitely a good start for 2012!
Just GREAT GREAT GREAT!
