Soul of the people

Students of the Intellectual School of Physics and Mathematics represented our country and our culture to the world and introduced them to our traditional musical instrument, which can be considered the soul of the people. We all know very well that the dombyra is the 'true Kazakh', so today can be called historic. 

Kulyash Shamshidinova, chairwoman of the board of the Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools JSC

The dombyra is a sacred instrument for every Kazakh, and the inclusion of our lesson in the Guinness Book is the opening of the dombyra to the world.

I became friends with the dombyra after entering NIS. When we were on distance learning during the pandemic, I took video lessons. Today is a special day for us. Of course, we were all very nervous, but now we're happy that we played for the Guinness Book and that our record will be dedicated to the dombyra.
