Salomnoma



🌱Salomnoma is a beautiful folk song of greetings, the part of the traditional wedding ceremony in Bukhara, where Oimullo (woman with religious education) sings special words from the ancient book "Salomnoma" with the wishes of happy life to the newlyweds and welcomes to all the Saints and Prophets.
The other two Oimullo accompanying the bride and groom hold a candle (the symbol of cleansing fire) and traditional bread (the symbol of abundance). Relatives support the oimullo repeating the words "Hazoralle!", which mean "A thousand times to all the wishes!". At the end, the groom takes the bride away.
