Sound of the Past, Ethno-music

"The development of our country has followed the principle of 'economy first, then politics'. But, in my opinion, there is something more important: the preservation of the cultural identity of the people. Economy and politics should follow after. Holding ethnic music festivals and aytis in one of the most beautiful and sacred places in Kazakhstan - Katon-Karagay - promotes the knowledge of our culture. Altai has a special place not only in the history of Kazakhstan but also in the formation of the entire Turkic civilization."

Serik Tolukpaev, organizer and founder of the Foundation for Sustainable Development of Rural Areas
