Last Friday, Bulgarian National Radio (BNR) broadcast a program devoted to Dimash Kudaibergen. The program aired two songs by the Kazakh singer, “Your Love” and “Amanat”.
On Friday, April 17, the Bulgarian National Radio Station (BNR) aired the first radio program about the unique talent of Dimash Kudaibergen. One of the main topics was why so many Bulgarians are flying thousands of kilometers to listen to the Kazakh singer.
“Dimash Kudaibergen Fan Club Bulgaria” members were answering the questions of Stanislava Pircheva, a leading journalist in BNR. She was very interested in Dimash’s life philosophy and human values. Stanislava also said they would like to interview Dimash.
Dr. Ralitsa Dimitrova, founder of the club, told BNR, “Dimash is also a unique musician with an extraordinary vocal range and a fascinating character. He impresses with the fact that with his music, he can tell such a story that he grabs you, and you can hardly breathe while listening to him. Even if you don’t understand the words, you receive emotional insight of the message he conveys to his listeners”.
During the broadcast, the Ralitsa highlighted the commonalities in the histories, traditions and cultures of Kazakhstan and Bulgaria and the similarities between the Kazakh dombra and the Bulgarian tambura.
In this regard, she shared about the special instrument Dimash received as a gift in 2018 – a handmade tambura. The instrument was made by the most famous Bulgarian luthier Svetlin Mitev, whose great-uncle is the oldest master luthier who made the instruments for the National Folklore Ensemble “Philip Koutev”.
Special attention was paid to the hospitality of the Kazakh people, the patriotism of Dimash, and the universal admiration for the family values that Dimash follows.
The presenters took notice of MTV’s Friday Livestream chart, which Dimash has been leading for six weeks now, and also asked about the activities of the DKFC Bulgaria.
During the radio program, the other club member, Petya Ivanova, shared the Bulgarian fan club holds events related to Dimash every month.
