Muqam from Kashgar

Musicians from Kashgar in northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region perform muqam, a traditional melody used in Uygur music, yesterday at the Shanghai Library, where an exhibition featuring calligraphy works, paintings and photographs created by Shanghai and Kashgar artists is being held until Thursday. The two cities have established links in industry, education, health care and rural construction, as Shanghai aims to support Kashgar to boost development in the Xinjiang city.
