Prof. Ted Levin's "The Music of Central Asia" published.

"The Music of Central Asia is like its subject: vast, variegated, resonant, and rich in musical traditions that have remained all too closed to outsiders for centuries. The book is both authoritative and innovative, ringing with regional voices and dozens of well-chosen examples of cultural riches to be sampled and savored by both specialists and students." —Mark Slobin, Winslow-Kaplan Professor of Music, Wesleyan University

Edited by Theodore Levin, Saida Daukeyeva, and Elmira Köchümkulova "The Music of Central Asia is an encyclopedic page turner! This is essential reading for all performers, composers, ethnomusicologists, students, scholars and culturally engaged people everywhere. There has never before been one book that so expertly, vividly and deeply unites the past, present and potential future of an entire swath of the world's musical landscape." —David Harrington, Kronos Quartet
