To coincide with the 2022 Middle East and Central Asia Music Forum, City presents an evening concert by the London Silk Road Collective, exponents of the beautiful and vibrant music of the Uyghur and Uzbek cultures, and the diverse music traditions found along the ancient Silk Road route, connecting Europe, Central Asia and South East Asia.

The London Silk Road Collective, founded in 2018, works to encourage collaboration among musicians from different cultures along the Silk Road, and celebrate their shared cultural heritage. The core group of professional Uzbek and Uyghur musicians perform maqam, songs and instrumental pieces on traditional instruments, ranging widely across Turkish, Azeri, Iranian, Afghan, Uzbek, and especially Uyghur musical traditions. In this era of cultural erasure in the Uyghur homeland, the group is committed to promoting the rich musical culture and history of the Uyghurs.
