Abstract:This dissertation explores the music that Bukharian Jews in Queens performed from January 2002 to February 2006. Bukharian Jews, living for centuries in Central Asia and recently emigrating en masse to New York City, Israel, and Europe, explore their history, identity, values, and migratory experiences through repertoire performance and transmission. By maintaining classical, celebratory, and religious repertoires in various media and performance contexts, Bukharian Jews articulate complex, multifaceted ideas about their community. The first-hand research, conducted at the beginning stages of Bukharian immigration and adaption to life in the United States, fills a gap in scholarship of Jewish music and American music, and complements extant work on music and poetry of Iran and Central Asia. This study examines various issues of structure and composition in Bukharian repertoire. The statements and activities of musicians elucidate theoretical principles and possibilities for performance. Maqom is understood as a living practice, and detailed analyses of rehearsals and demonstrations of standard repertoire by Roshel Rubinov and the setting of a new text to an existing maqom melody by Ezro Malakov's ensemble reveal ways in which principles of maqom repertoire are understood and engaged by contemporary working musicians. The author's experiences in Queens learning to play the tanbūr with two teachers, Roshel Amin and Roshel Rubinov, provide the foundation for discussions of transmission and pedagogy. This study explores methods of developing instrumental technique, memory, and cognitive style, pedagogical uses of recordings and notations, and the aesthetics and issues surrounding the professional musician and master-student relationship. Professional musicians, with support from community institutions, have an authority to perpetuate Bukharian ideas of tradition. Through repertoire, they construct historical narratives, sustain and uphold community values, and keep a sense of community intact across the vast distances of a unique, multi-layered diaspora. By engaging music and literature of the past and creating new repertoire, musicians address and satisfy the Bukharian community's desire to maintain continuity and unity in the face of upheaval, and to flourish and prosper in a new environment.
