The song “Diňe öňe, Türkmenistan!” was dedicated to the Turkmen people and the Fatherland, which is confidently advancing under the leadership of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov along the path of progress and prosperity.
With great enthusiasm, the audience greeted the performance of bagshy-sazandars and dance groups, which in the composition “Bäş welaýat jem bolanda” reflected the unique style and originality of the performing manner, characteristic of certain regions of Turkmenistan, and together constituting a rich palette of musical national culture.
Replacing each other, popular performers of folk and pop songs, famous musicians demonstrated their skills. The audience applauded the best choreographic and folk groups of the country.
One of the key moments of the celebration under the arches of “Türkmeniň ak öýi” was the symbolic handover of the baton of the Week of Culture, which, in accordance with the Decree of the President of Turkmenistan, will be held in Ashgabat in 2023.
The performance of the “Dehistan” ensemble and folklore musical groups, which performed the ancient kushtdepdi dance, which is the national treasure of the Turkmen people and enriched the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, was a great pleasure.
The festive action was completed by the patriotic song “Arkadagly Serdarymyz sag bolsun”, which sounded like a hymn to the era of the Revival of the new epoch of the powerful state - the time of the true flowering of national art. Under its solemn music, frames were shown on the monitors, reflecting the creative pace of our time, the successes of representatives of the cultural sphere. Standing, with a special sense of pride in the beloved Fatherland, the audience listened to the words of this wonderful song.
