A pilgrimage to Jewish cemeteries in Tashkent, Samarkand, Shahrisabz, and Bukhara serves as an opportunity to reconsider the New York immigrant community in terms of the global Bukharian diaspora. The trip reinforces several key points: music and poetry continually express complex ideas of diaspora, Bukharian Jews' adaptation strategies in New York are based in their Central Asian experiences, and professional musicians have a special role in guiding the community and serving as intercultural emissaries.
