Kazakhstan rock band Motor-Roller will perform at the 14th International Festival TUSOVKA in Helsinki, Tengrinews.kz reports. This festival is held twice a year: in Finland in spring and in Saint-Petersburg in autumn. Kazakhstan will be represented at the festival by a band for the first time. The main goal of the festival is to introduce Finnish citizens to Russian-language rock and pop music and give a chance to the Russian-language members of the audience to listen to Finnish music. According to Motor-Roller band's frontman Ilyas Autov, not just anyone can take part in the festival - bands are carefully selected. The performers can take part in the festival only after an audition by the organizers, while famous bands are invited without any additional requirements. The latter was the case for the Kazakhstan rock band. Ilyas Autov added that participation in a new festival was always interesting for his band. “Especially that the audience will be different, foreign. We will be playing on the first day of the festival. It will last for 2 days. We will have around 40 minutes, we will play about 12 songs, so this will be like a small concert,” Autov said. Motor-Roller band is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and Ilyas Autov promised that the band would have a concert in Almaty on this occasion.
