A Gem from Murghab

While we were traveling around Badakhshan we were hosted by gracious musicians and dancers who were more than happy to share with us their heritage of music and dance, and we would sometimes feel separated from modernity and transported to another time. But the friendly artists of Murgab, one of the most isolated places in Central Asia, insisted on letting us know that they weren't going to be left behind by the times. At the end of a performance featuring traditional Badakshani and Kyrgyz music and dance, they proudly plugged in their synthesizer for some pop tunes. The best part? . . . . They left on their traditional Kyrgyz costumes! Enjoy.

Seems to me, the Confessions Tour used this number.
