The Kyrgyz have kept their ancient Turkic musical forms which are surprisingly closer to the intonations of Northern Europe than to those of neighbouring peoples such as Tajik, Afghan or Uzbek. Essentially a soloist's music, it involves short sketches, either anonymous or composed by grand masters of the 19th or 20th century. There are moving cantilenas for the kiak viol, brilliant pieces for the komuz lute, astounding pieces for flute, ocarina, jew’s harp and chants celebrating nature and the virtues of the Kyrgyz man.
