Lale Beknazarova


Joss sang the Turkmen lullaby with Lale Beknazarova who is the national singer of Turkmenistan, who sings a combination of classical and folk music. A very traditional song played with the instrument, the Dutar, made a unique and interesting sound which gave us a wonderful Introduction to Turkmen music. It was a great privilege to be around Lale and experience the sound of her voice. Watch the collaboration and see what you think. We hope you enjoy.

Our show in Turkmenistan was a wonderful experience. Everyone who came and saw us made us feel at home, with an engaging audience the night was fun.

The little children getting up on the stage and joining in, made the evening extra special, they were all so lovely. We're happy to have introduced some soul music into people's lives, we even got the chance to collaborate with the Turkmenistan singer Lale Begnazarova which is really one of the best ways to get the know the sound of the land your in.

Thanks for coming along. The people, the place and everything about Turkmenistan, was quite a pleasant surprise.
