While Uzbekistan state television is ranting about how rock music is from
the devil, now neighboring Turkmenistan is taking cultural control drastic
steps further and has arrested two young Turkmen pop singers. One of them,
who goes by the name Ma-Ro has attracted as many as 10,000-20,000 views for
dozens of his tunes on the video-sharing site Youtube — despite strict
government controls over the Internet.
