Kamel Junistegi is a collector of ancient types of dombra
For this interview, the Culture Talks program team went to the Shet district of the Karaganda region. Famous writer Kamel Zhunistegi lives in its administrative center, in the village of Aksu-Ayuly. During the Soviet Union, he was exiled to Siberia for the creation of «Yessep» party. Many works of the writer were devoted to that period. Though he is 80 years old, Kamel Zhunistegi, who sought the beauty of the world through the prism of sorrows, is still searching for the lost heritage of the Kazakhs. Six kinds of the Arka dombra are stored in his house. Today, we will talk about ancient musical instruments and the Kazakh way of predicting the weather for 12 months of the year.
