- "Sharqtaronalari" is a festival that brings together the best musicians in the world, - says the member of the group IvanashviliNikoloz. Today, having performance for the first time, we did our best. I felt the warm support of the audience. Samarkand has an incredible musical atmosphere. We are happy to be here. The biggest impression on us made the authors and performers of their songs. It's amazing to get acquainted with such talented people. Something you to take note, something you to learn and something you share.
- What do you think how the festival "Sharqtaronalari" would be able to acquire so many fans in a short time?
- I think that the reason is that the festival is aimed at strengthening friendship and development of music. And folklore is always appreciated, as it reflects the traditions and customs of the peoples. That is why the festival gathers musicians from around the world, its scale is rising and fans is growing. The festival is held for the tenth time that speaks of his high authority.
- We liked the audience. We believe that they are true connoisseurs of music. We faced a wave of applause. This is the most powerful simulator for any artist. I also want to note that we have never met such a hospitality as in Uzbekistan. We also really liked the Uzbek cuisine. We found out the recipe for its preparation and on the arrival home, surely we will try to cook it. However, from our memory will never be erased memories of historical monuments. Samarkand forever etched in our hearts. We would be very happy if we are invited again!
