Aidar Sunday 2!



Last time, Aidar Galimov, the multiawarded pop singer of Tatarstan and Bashkiria, sang about his childhood and youth, the beginnings of his career. In this song - Kezge jillar - the subject is melancholy love. Ah, those Tatars.

If that isn't enough, I have to post this video for the song Kun men ay by Berkut. There's footage from a Kazakh film in this video, but I can't remember what its name is. Can anybody help me?



Of course, the subject is (again) love. "You are my sun and my moon" - kun men ay. Those Kazakhs!

Awww, I wish they would show Kazakh films in theaters here.

Have you, Tinet and Ainur, ever heard the voice/performance of TENG-E-ER, from Mongolia (independent country, or Chinese region - I couldn´t find out where he really was born)? I don´t know Eastern artists (anything, properly), but as a pop-star from the Far-East (so famous in Taiwan, Hong Kong etc.), I think he´s pretty good (pop sweet rock isn´t in fact my fave). Cheers

Thanks, Alan! That sounds very interesting. Do you have any link to more information about him? I can't seem to find anything when I google "Teng-e-er" ...
