The musicians of Turksoy orchestra are awaited in Kyrgyzstan, Turkey and Cyprus
Kazakhstan will mark the 25th anniversary of independence on December 16. The orchestra of folk instruments created this year by the initiative of the International Organization of Turkic Culture organized a concert in Almaty for music lovers ahead of this jubilee date. The musicians from different countries combined their talents to show the beauty of Turkic peoples’ music.
A young team presented the whole variety of traditional Turkic musical instruments. They say that the team still is in a creative search, experiment with new and old tunes, change arrangements. During performances, musicians’ love to almost forgotten rubaba and kobyz becomes instantly transmitted to the audience.
