UZBEKISTAN: Sherzod Ergashev’s cat duet

I remember seeing this delightful meme go viral a few months ago on TikTok – Uzbek musician Sherzod Ergashev dueting a cat video on the tar, and people adding more and more instruments as it went along.

Ergashev has a whole bunch more meme music played on classical Uzbek instruments – this version of the Coffin Dance on the oud and tanbur is actually really beautiful:

He also is a serious musician and singer, and a polymath when it comes to instruments, both Central Asian and Western. I also enjoyed this socially distanced tar duet with Iranian musician Naghmeh Moradabadi.
