UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Hammer Museum present

Special Presentation: Turan

June 10, 2011 - 8:00 pm

We are delighted to announce that our film series, “Kazakhstan: Montage of Cinemas,” will open with a special appearance by the Kazakh traditional music ensemble Turan, which performs on an array of ancient plucked, bowed, wind and percussive Kazakh instruments, with traditional throat singing. Founded in 2008 by a group of students from the Kurmangazy Kazakh National Conservatory, the members of Turan are award-winning artists who have performed around the world. This evening’s performance will precede the first screening of the Archive’s film series on Saturday, June 11.
