Cultural and ethnic notes:
The (folk) music of Kazakhstan has originated from the nomads who used to occupy Kazakhstan, who had a strong musical and poetic culture.

Traditional music characteristics:
Often very lively stringed music, has pretty interesting sound, I like it!

My current research indicates that most traditional instruments in Kazakhstan are stringed.
