Dolan rewap is specific to the Dolan people they are a neighbouring
ethnic minority to the Uigur who can be found in the Yarkand River
valley and the Tarim river valley and also the Lop Nur region of present
day Turkestan (Xinjiang China). There are some aspects to Dolan music
and dance that remain unique. Although their music is often categorized
along with the Uighur On Iqi Maqam (the 12 Maqam) the Dolan repertoire
is quite different.
