Youtube can sometimes provide more info than an article:

Here is a different look at Uyghur culture, one that has been growing over the years among the youth. Here you can witness many different personalities, all of them wanting to be heard in express themselves how they please, and enjoy what they do at the same time. It is interesting to note the names and the different roots, some Persian, some Turkish, and some with a gangster English nicknamed attached to them. I find the Persian ones to be particularly interesting!

The power of rap helps breaks free the chains that are often placed on the Uyghur. I wish these talented groups that can produce music using all of the different languages they have been affected by success and hopefully they will “get to do this until [they] are old”.

There are 5 parts to this series, the final two can be found in the related links section on Youtube. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
