Listen to this performance by the Uyghur European Ensemble. Since 2017, Uyghur culture has faced an unprecedented challenge due to China’s oppression. Millions of innocent ethnic Uyghurs are in Chinese concentration camps. In those camps, there are Uyghur philosophers, artists, and poets fighting to keep Uyghur culture alive.
Uyghur European Ensemble was created in April 2019, later registered as a nonprofit in Sweden. Their mission is not only to keep Uyghur music alive, but to also bring it to a wider audience.
