Performance: 'Qyrq Qyz'
March 4, 2018
UMass Amherst Campus
In the Central Asian epic Qyrq Qyz (40 Girls, pronounced “Kirk Kiz”), a girl gathers 40 young female warriors to vanquish invaders, securing her clans’ freedom. Uzbek filmmaker Saodat Ismailova’s multimedia adaptation sets live performances by female reciters and instrumentalists against multiscreen video projections, with a musical score by Tashkent-based composer Dmitri Yanov-Yanovsky. Join us for a true celebration of women’s musical traditions in the Muslim world.
