Title:The hundred thousand fools of God : musical travels in Central Asia (and Queens, New York)
Abstract:Through music, The Hundred Thousand Fools of God opens a window onto the cultural and political history of Central Asia in tsarist, Soviet, and post-Soviet times. Narrated as a travelogue, the book presents the author's encounters with musicians in Tashkent, Bukhara, Khorezm, the mountains and valleys of Uzbekistan and Tajikistan--and Queens, New York, where many Bukharan Jewish musicians have emigrated
