Jazz and rock-and-roll – a concert of retro music will be held in Ashgabat

On October 20, a real extravaganza of music 50-60 years will be played on a stage of the concert hall “Turkmenistan”. Pop concert called “Hipsters” promises an unforgettable diving into the epoch of twist, boogie-woogie and frivolous rock-and-roll.

Hipsters are jazzy, bold, unusual guys and girls of the mid-20th-century, inspired by the musical trends of that time, chose a unique style everywhere – from Hollywood hairstyle to saturated color of “yellow boots” as “Bravo” band sang in its famous song.

The concert’s organizers do not want to reveal all the surprises, but they assure that it will be fun. The program will include songs from the eponymous film “Hipsters”, immortal hits of Elvis Presley and many others.

– We have prepared such program purposely to recall those times, pianist Vladimir Mkrtumov scarcely unravels “secrets”.

Unique Maisa Niyazova and energetic Alexander Kochetov will perform unforgettable smash-hits of those times. It is supposed to be a duet of vocalists, but most of the program will consist of solo performances.

– We will present favorite hits, but we will perform them in our own way, – Maisa Niyazova shares. – Besides the “hipster” tracks, we will also sing foreign songs, which to some extent were the stimuli of the hipsters’ movement. Our “highlight” for the audience will be several jazz compositions.
