Competition of akyns-improvisers held in Bishkek

A grandiose show took place in Bishkek — Bilim Aitysh competition of akyns-improvisers. The organizer of the event is Internews in Kyrgyzstan.

The organization notes that akyns — poets-improvisers — are an important part of the cultural code of the Kyrgyz Republic, the voice of the people, traditionally connecting society and government. Since ancient times, akyns played the role of a modern press and, through skillful versification and melodies, conveyed to the rulers the aspirations of ordinary people.

The event took place at the Kyrgyz National Philharmonic Hall named after Toktogul Satylganov.
