For several years, your donations have enabled us to provide support to young Altai throat-singers, so they could afford to continue their training.
We are delighted to announce that they once again performed at El Oyin, the biennial national Altai cultural festival, to rave reviews. They also continue to perform for the community. I have attached a video of our group giving an informal concert at a children's camp.
Thank you for your continued support.
Viktor is a seventeen-year-old throat-singing phenomenon. He's also a joyful ambassador for Altai culture, as he works with the children in the Ust Koksa district. To reach his full potential, Viktor needs our financial help -- for traditional instruments and performance costuming, as well as for training.
He'll be working at children's camps this summer (but as a volunteer, because the village kids have no money). But he really needs to get to Altai's biennial national cultural festival in July, to compare notes with other young throat-singers and to be coached by the few throat-singing elders.
Optimally, he needs recurring donations, so he can attend university next fall. Your donations have already helped one group of talented young people get their educations. Please invest now in Viktor -- the most promising of the next wave of kids.
