Musician A.R Rahman has recently shared a video of a dombra performance by Marzhan Kapsamat of Nursultan, Kazakhstan.
In the video, you can see a 23-year-old musician Marzhan Kapsamat is playing in Lake Köbeituz, a salt lake in Kazakhstan that turns pink every several years. This lake where the video has been shot has attracted the attention of many people on social platforms. The lake is located 160 kilometers from the Kazakh capital in the Ereymentau district.
Further, while watching the video you can notice that the musician has given a modern spin on traditional Kazakh clothing. She is wearing a blue dress with an ornamental hat called a “saukele,”. It’s an ornate headdress that Kazakh women would wear as brides. This exquisite moment captures the essence of traditional fashion through the lens of a modern world, while also bringing the dombra into the digital era.
