The Rill Village in Xinhe (Toksu) County claims a history of over 150 years of manufacturing Uyghur folk music instruments, specially known as tembir, rawap and dutar. Xinjiang Folk Music Instrument Village has a traditional musical intruments museum. This photographic work is about Ramazan Emin and his family, the famous music intrument maker of this village.

Çin'in Uygur Özerk Bölgesi'nde Toksu Nahiyesi'nde tembir, rawap ve dutar gibi geleneksel Uygur müzik aletleri yapımı 150 yıldır özel bir yer tutuyor. Devlet teşviği de olunca, pekçok insan geçimini bu zenaat ile sağlıyor. Özellikle, Taklamakan Çölü kıyısında bereketli tarım alanlarına sahip olan ve geleneksel kerpiç mimarinin örneklerinin de görüldüğü Onüç Su Köyü sakinlerinin pek çoğu evlerinde ailecek bu işi de yapıyorlar. Çin'in ünlü saz yapımı ustalarından biri olan Ramazan Emin de burada yaşıyor. Köyde bir müzik aletleri müzesi de bulunuyor.
