Presentation of a DVD version of The Spirit of Tengri festival took place in Almaty in the end of November. Two ethnic bands Namgar from Buryatia and Argymak from Bashkortostan performed at the concert dedicate. The audience exploded in cheers for Argymak songs that are in many ways similar to Kazakh songs. “During our visit we felt the spirit of our ancestors. Bashkirs and Kazakhs have visited each other, shared news and lived like brothers since old times. Our ancestors were the founders of rap. They rapped on the go. (…) It is great to see talented artistic people in the contemporary society,” Rinat Ramazanov of Argymak 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.
