There are many people who call the Middle East their home yet they are not Arabs, they may speak Arabic, but they do not see themselves as ethnic Arabs. Therefore, they have their own culture, and music and more. The ethnic politics are messy, but I wish people would clam down and chill--music would help them to do just that. Think about that Kurd contestant on Arab Idol, she sang in Arabic and win over people who saw her as talented person regardless of her background.
While there are influence between these cultures, the majority tend to be Muslims who have found themselves in the region. Some want independence, others want recognition, and others want to just make a living.
This video is dedicated to all Abazins, Adyghey, Kabardians and Circassians spread out all over the world! Thought I would share it so that everyone can appreciate this awesome music from the Caucasus. Pass Along, Like, Share, Post.
