Among these festivals and concerts are At the Top of Tengri, First Rock Award of Kazakhstan and the second festival of contemporary ethnic music The Spirit of Tengri-2014 that took place on June 7 in Almaty and was attended by more than eight thousand people.
Lasting for more than seven hours, the concert featured musicians from a variety of countries, including Kazakhstan, Russia’s Bashkortostan, Buryatia, Altai and Tuva, Austria, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey, Georgia and Ecuador.
A fan of The Spirit of Tengri project, musician, producer and philanthropist Yerlan Stambekov said that he would definitely attend the November 26 concert. According to him, the upcoming grand show is an exclusive event.
"In my opinion, this is really a unique and interesting event that we can enjoy together with Tengri FM radio. We will see our favorite bands at the concert. (...) We will once again become engrossed in the world of our music, the music of the steppes that was born many centuries ago but still remains relevant. It is an emotional, spiritual, musical fountain that awakens the most amazing and positive feelings in people,” Stambekov said.
A special two-disc edition The Spirit of Tengri-2014 contains extensive material. Besides a 1.5-hour recording of the best performances of each of the artists who graced the summer stage of The Spirit of Tengri, the edition also contains the best hits of participants in a studio format. The music tracks on the CD and the DVD are not the same. The DVD also includes a photo album of the festival.
Anticipating the release of the DVD the organizers held a live concert of contemporary ethnic music again in October calling the musical show "Voices of Autumn". The key figure at that concert was a Tuvan musician, multi-instrumentalist, virtuoso throat singer Radik Tyulyush. He was accompanied by a Kazakh DJ Nariman Issenov and a vocal ensemble "Kazyna". Here is a fragment of the concert with Tyulyush performing.
The general producer of The Spirit of Tengri FM Zhan Kasteyev said that Namgar and Argymak had their tours booked out for several years to come, so it was a great luck to get them both to perform on the Kazakh stage in late November.
"Participation of both of these bands complements the event. Namgar and Argymak are among the most famous bands in the Ethno World genre. All those who have not yet become familiar with their music, I think, will make a real discovery for themselves. (…) This is a unique case when extraordinary and original music is on one side of the scale with drive and fiery energy on the other side. One will not only enjoy the talents of the musicians and their music, but also experience the drive and have a great time," Kasteyev said.
The cost of the tickets for the upcoming concert is 3000 tenge ($17).
