This short though well-informed article is based on Central Asian family-event songs (marriage, children cycle, funeral mourning cycle) in Judeo-Persian and in Hebrew taped by the author from immigrants to Israel from Uzbekistan and Tajikistan in the 1970s to 1990s. The study of this corpus permits the author to develop on the specific religious culture of Central Asian Jews, while sketching comparison prospects with musical and cultural traditions of the region’s Muslim majority.
