- This is my first time to visit Kazakhstan and bring the musical group and I was really impressed today here this beautiful afternoon. We have interaction with kids, with playing music, traditional music of Kazakhstan, dombra for my first time live. Before, I was watching from the Youtube. I tried to learn about Kazakhstan music and Kazakhstan culture.
Dwiki's music originates from the ancient gamelan tonal system, which is the traditional music of the Sunda Islands. He combines national rhythms and original melodies with jazz, rock and funk, opening the door to a world of vivid impressions.
