«BALA DAUSY»: 17 WINNERS ARE PREPARING FOR THE SUPERFINAL!
The author’s project of Aliya Nazarbayeva’s «Zhandanu alemi» foundation, supported by the Ministry of culture and sports of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Foundation of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan – Elbasy – «Bala dausy» National children song contest’s fourth season qualifying rounds finished on May 22, Nur-Sultan.
17 children, aged 8 to 12 years, turned into the main heroes of the most popular children's song contest, the qualifying rounds of which were held from March 28 in all regions of the country. Within 2 months «Zhandanu alemi» Foundation creative team covered 12,450 km just to bring joy to the children, parents and their tutors. A unique festive atmosphere reigned in every audition. Participants were given an opportunity to feel like a «star»: flash interviews for TV and mass media, photo and video shoots for Youtube-diaries. Every audition was accompanied by charity concert with popular singers and ex-finalists from the last season. Every participant was given a present and certificate, but the most important for them were the experience, new knowledge and huge positive emotional boost. “Every year we are waiting for «Bala dausy», because this is the only contest which visits every region in our country. That is really fantastic, when a little child meets popular artists, listen to their advices and recommendations. And for us, for parents and tutors, Farida Niyazova-music producer made the master class on art of vocal, talked about the preparation for contests and about the choice of the song! That’s why my son Amir’s failure to reach the final is not disappointing. The most important is that he can find some new friends here.” – shared her experience Aygul Orsarieva.
This year the popular domestic singers like Zarina Altynbayeva, Ali Okapov, Marzhan Arapbayeva, Daniyar Otegen, Marseille, Dinara Sultan, Beybit Kushkaliyev, Serik Ibragimov and others supported and judged children. The auditions were open for everyone, it means that every participant and his/her parent could see the performance of others, in order to widen their musical background and learn some new lessons. «It’s very difficult to choose the most talented, because every child has his own natural talent and unique from the birth: one has beautiful voice, another one has artistic skills, and the third is a good dancer. Personally I had participated number of contests, when I was a child. However, no victories at all. It’s very sad, that we can choose only one child from the whole region, but the rules are like that. I am very grateful for the trust of parents to their kids, it really matters for children!» - says Daniyar Otegen, star-tutor of Qostanay region.
Following the results of qualifying rounds, the right to represent his own region was given to Miras Maksimov, Dilnur Atageldy, Datattreya Aishani, Meirambek Shalkharbay, Anel Suleymenova, Sezim Kaharman, Alimzhan Tugelbay, Alfia Tilekkabyl, Dilara Karzhaubay, Dana Baskenova, Ersultan Shaimurat, Abilmansur Yedres, Aruzhan Rakhmanali, Ramila Nuraldinova, Shyngys Asagatuly, Batyr Daurenbekov and Kamilla Kuzdenbayeva. These are the names of those young talents, who are preparing for “Star house” in Almaty. Kids will have unforgettable meetings with famous producers, actors, artists, choreographers, stylists and photographers, who will hold their creative evenings and master classes for them.
This cozy house has become one of the most favorite and memorable places for the finalists of all seasons. This is the place, where children become true friends to each other and their further friendship is beyond the frames of the project. As usual, they continue keeping in touch, calling and meeting with each other. Finalists say that «Star house» gives them an opportunity to have at least one friend in each region of our immense homeland. The participants note that a month away from home flies by, and the farewell moment is always very touching and difficult, because the experience and the people, who surround the finalists during this time, make them independent and decisive.
The audience and viewers can see the performance of our finalists on October 24 and 26 at the Republic Palace, where 2 final concert programs will be held. The finalists will perform new author's songs, which are being written by Kazakh composers and songwriters. After the final concerts all songs will be given to Kazakhstani schools and kindergartens for free.
Spectators, TV-viewers and the jury committee will define the winner of Grand-Prix, who will be given the scholarship to National University of Art and trip to Disneyland. The competition will end with a stunning musical performance "Eternal values and children's dream". The script of the play is kept confidential, but the organizers believe that it will be unique and exclusive musical show with the participation of children in the history of Kazakhstan!
