Turkic Music at Amoeba

Amoeba records on Haight Street, in San Francisco has traditionally been a place where Tatar music is available.  I've purchased a couple of Zulya CD's and some mixed Tatar folk compilations over the years.  They have a Gubaidulina section.  Sadly, I predict their days are numbered. 

This is the closest thing I could find to Tatar music there during my last visit, with their selection getting a bit sparse. CD cover Gentleman looks Bashkir to me!  I did not purchase..

Fortunately, they still have about a half dozen Gubaidulina albums in stock and I was able to snag 4 for under 20 dollars. 

I'll keep you posted about the fate of Amoeba.
