Mansur Zakir: inheritor of Ashula and Yalla
I’m Mansur Zakir, a member of the Uzbek ethnic group.
I’m a national-level inheritor of Ashula and Yalla, a national-level representative project of intangible cultural heritage.
Among our Uzbek cultural traditions of music and dance,
Ashula and Yalla are the most representative (songs).
埃希来（长篇叙事民歌）篇幅长 结构复杂 音域宽
Ashula is a long narrative folk song with a complex structure and a broad range of voices.
We mostly sing it at large gatherings, and we think deeply while listening to it.
We can also accompany the song with a slow dance.
Yalla is a kind of short folk songs with a lively melody.
We mostly perform it on such festive occasions as wedding ceremonies.
Ashula and Yalla are complementary to each other.
Ashula represents the broad-mindedness of the Uzbek people.
Yalla expresses our love of life.
Together the two have enriched our lives,
and recorded the art and culture of our Uzbek ethnic group.
