"Lost in the muqam" follows Mahmut Mehmet, a Uyghur musician living in China's Xinjiang province. The Uyghurs are a Muslim ethnic minority losing many traditions under Chinese rule, even music is beginning to suffer. Mahmut began playing the tambur when he was eleven years old and studied with the late virtuoso Nurmahemmet Tursun, but despite his immense talent, he is now struggling to find an audience. He makes a living performing at dinner parties and teaching young students, but can his music survive in the ever-changing and hostile environment of modern China?
