This episode is about shankobyz, one of the most ancient Kazakh musical instruments. It has a distinctive sound associated with antiquity—perhaps because similar instruments vibrated by breath can be found in the musical culture of many other nations. We will play three halyq kuis: Qyz muny, Anshynyn zary, Sary Arqa.
This podcast is based on the anthology Ancient Motifs of the Great Steppe, published by the Auezov Institute of Literature and Art, http://auezovinstitute.kz/
