Baqytty Bala was implemented in 2018 with the support of Berdibek Saparbayev, then akim (governor) of the Aktobe region. The organizers are Dimash Kudaibergen, his team and his hometown Aktobe.
The idea to organize such a competition was proposed by Dimash Fan Club “Dimash Salem”. Fans of the performer thought that such a project is most suitable for Dimash, who began his career by participating in competitions and who loves children very much. This idea immediately appealed to Dimash and his parents.
Participation in the Baqytty Bala has helped many finalists gain confidence and move forward to new achievements. After the Grand Prix of “Baqytty Bala”, Yerzhan Maksim became the winner and sensation of “The Voice: Children” in Russia, and took the honorable second place at “Eurovision Junior – 2019”.
Mirzhan Zhidebay was a finalist at “The Voice: Children” this year. Adeline Mukhametzhanova became the laureate of the Sanremo Junior and the American Protege competition and performed, at the age of 12, on the stage of the famous Carnegie Hall in New York.
The organizers of the competition are looking forward to new talents on their stage and wish all the participants great luck!
