A concert of TURKSOY folk instruments orchestra was held at the Kyrgyz National Philharmonic hall named after T. Satylganov in Bishkek.
The visually stunning show marked the 25th anniversary of independence of Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan.
The concert featuring the best Turkic folk songs aroused a big interest among the audience.
The folk instruments orchestra of TURKSOY was founded in 2016 on the initiative of the Secretary General of the organization.
The Turkic speaking countries recently implement more joint initiatives and common projects. For many centuries, countries share a common language, culture, religion and history.
TURKSOY is an international cultural organization of countries with Turkic populations, whose speaking languages belong to the Turkic language family.
The organization has its roots going back to the 1992 meetings in Baku and Istanbul, where the ministers of culture from Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkey, and Turkmenistan declared their commitment to cooperate in a joint cultural framework. TURKSOY was subsequently established by an agreement signed on July 12, 1993 in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
