Munojat YUlchieva (born 1960), also known under the name Munadjat, is the leading performer of classical Uzbek music and its Persian-language cousin Shashmaqâm. She is famous for the unique quality of her voice and her natural charisma. Munojat was born on the 26th of November in 1960 in the village Shirinbulok which is a part of the region situated in Ferghana valley near Tashkent. From an early age it was obvious she had a great gift as a singer. This nearly resulted in her being lead into a career as an opera singer, but she was drawn towards the slow, aching music of her own ancient culture, something that seemed almost pre-ordained by her name, which means “ascent to God” or simply ”prayer”.
