We have visited a number of different parts of Xinjiang to collect audio and video materials and to interview performers that accompany Ugyur pilgrimages to shrines in Western China. We have made great progress in archiving, editing, transcribing, transliterating these materials. Two films of women’s Sufi poetry performances and one film on shrine visitation, with Uyghur transcription in the form of subtitles in Uyghur, have already been completed; more than two other films are being prepared.
