«The verbal wealth of the people is an invaluable legacy». Tamara Asar on oratory
Distinguished Kazakh sal sery, singers and musicians left their immemorial traces in the history of literature and musical art. There is an expression «The Kazakh jigit possesses more than seven talents». Artists in the old days were known to be endowed with versatile skills. In the western regions they were called «kaiky-saiky» (қайқы-сәйкі). That is, creative men were called kaiky, and talented artists were called saiky. Nowadays, there are distinguished persons, who continue the traditions of old musicians in the 21st century. «Alash Uly» and «Steppe sons» groups revive cultural legacy, performing in the ethno-jazz style. And today they are visiting us.
