Kazakh Concert

National Kazakh Instrument Guimbarde or Gewgaw

Kazakh Woman 1893

These talented musicians were in town this week for a tour of North America. They performed at Zellerbach auditorium at the UC Berkeley campus: Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff and Kazakh traditional music. The music of our Kazakh cousins sounds nothing like Tatar music, but the language is structurally related to the Tatar language.
