      The land that is now Uzbekistan was once at the heart of the ancient Silk Road trade route connecting China with the Middle East and Rome. . In the 19thth centuries, after Uzbekistan became part of the Russian Empire and Soviet Union, a school devoted to classical music opened in Uzbekistan. Uzbek folk motifs permeated the classical music creating a unique, Eastern flavor. After independence, Uzbek pop music came about in a similar way, and native genres saw a revival.

      The Republic of Uzbekistan is an exporter of excellent wines, some of which are produced at the Khovrenko factory in Samarkand (former factory of D. M. Filatov, whose new variety of grapes named ‘Biishty’ was awarded a gold medal at the International Exhibition of Wines and Brandies in Paris in ).Author: Alesha And Jarryd. Uzbekistan music. Music is omnipresent in Uzbek society. From the lullabies sung to an infant when it is first placed in its cradle, to the ancient laments heard at funerals and commemorative ceremonies, the strains of these melodies accompany every aspect of life. Some of the Uzbek ritual traditional music is thousands of years old.

    The culture of Uzbekistan has a wide mix of ethnic groups and cultures, with the Uzbeks being the majority group. In , about 71% of Uzbekistan's population was Uzbek. The chief minority groups were Russians (%), Tajiks (officially 5%, but believed to be much higher), Kazaks (%), Tatars (%), and Karakalpaks (%), and other minority groups include Armenians and Koryo-saram.   An Uzbek Music Shop owner in Tashkent gives GlobalCAFE a tour of some of Uzbekistan's wonderful traditional instruments and music.
