SAMAL ASANOVA, ORGANIZER:
- Kylkobyz is the most ancient musical instrument which we inherited from our ancestors. The Kobyz conveyed the joy and sorrow of the Kazakh people. Our main goal is to introduce people to the values of the Kobyz and to popularize the instrument among the younger generation.
