Ulytau ("The Great Mountain") is a Kazakh Folk-Rock Band perform ethno music (and also popular classic) in hard and pop-rock styles. They are as equally keen or distinguished cover-versions of classical themes of Bach, Vivaldi and Mozart, as on their own - rather condensed on sounding-dramatically associated opuses. Musicians talently inlay traditionally light sounding of a violin and originally-concentrated "dombra" (the kazakh national instrument) into a rigid aesthetics of heavy rock, blues and ... "relaxing-new-age". For example, eight and last composition of an album "Jumyr-Kylysh" distinctly cast meditative theme of brasilian Avankan.
