Virtuoso from Afghanistan by Mohammad Omar ( Recording )
6 editions published in 2002 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ustad Mohammad Omar, Afghanistan's finest rabab player, became the first Afghan musician to teach in the United States when he arrived at the University of Washington in Seattle in 1974. This CD documents his only public performance in America and is the first full length album of his to be released in the United States. Playing his rabab, a short-necked lute that is plucked with a plectrum called a shahbaz, and accompanied on the tabla by a young Zakir Hussain, Mohammad Omar shared Afghan traditional music with the West in this memorable and important concert. Hussain and Omar had never met before that day, nor did they speak a common language, but their musical voices intertwine magically on this classic recording, available here commercially for the first time. The music is steeped in the traditions of Afghanistan and that country's own relationship to Indian and Pakistani musical influences, but this virtuoso performance stands alone as a triumph of Eastern music" -- Container
