Musical instruments

The essential and the very important side of the country is seen in musical instruments. This is a sort of culture of Kyrgyzstan necessary to be taken guests in a tour. We advise you to travel here to immerse in the history of the Kyrgyz people. Long time ago, until the 20th century, everything was transmitted orally, there were no skills of writing. That is why the famous epic Manas was first transmitted orally and only in the 20th century the Soviet investigators put about 500,000 lines on paper.

The process of retelling the epic may be seen all along Kyrgyzstan tours, by manachi. These are men who are ready to retell it without looking at the text, by heart, under the accompaniment of komuz. Then there are akyns who make an improvisation of any subject but without accompaniment of musical instruments. As for musical instruments, the following are of wide choice in the country komuz, temir-komuz, kyl-kyak, core, sorny, choor and zhetigen. Guests are offered to take Kyrgyzstan tours with an aim to feel nature and harmony of the life of the nomads.
