SOAS Silk Road Collective: 'This concert responds to the separation experienced by all Uyghurs in exile: separation from their homeland and their loved ones due to the repressive policies of the Chinese regime, and separation due to the international restrictions imposed by Covid-19.
In response to these crises, we bring together musicians from different continents in a shared virtual space to perform Uyghur muqam and classic folksongs. Our performance aims to raise awareness of the Uyghur crisis, and to raise funds to support the European Uyghur Institute.
