This is a Winter concert. Father Frost makes repeated appearances. Some of the songs are just lovely. Some are terrible, weak keyboard pop. It's interesting to listen to the Bashkir language with a Tatar ear. The two languages are so similar that they are practically dialects of the same language. Tatars enjoy singing Bashkir folk songs and Vise Versa. This video is just over Three and a half hours in duration.
Due to its isolated position in the Altai Mountains and contact with surrounding languages, the classification of Altai within the Turkic languages has often been disputed. Because of its geographic proximity to the Shor and Khakas languages, some classifications place it in a Northern Turkic subgroup. Due to certain similarities with Kyrgyz, it has been grouped with the Kypchak languages. A more recent classification by Talat Tekin places Southern Altai in its own subgroup within Turkic and groups the Northern Altai dialects with Lower Chulym and the Kondoma dialect of Shor.
