Young Altai throat-singers go international

Donors to Altai Mir University have been providing stipends to enable extraordinarily talented, but financial destitute young Altai musicians to continue their university training as professional musicians. This summer, members of the International Altai Expedition were treated to wonderful concerts (see videos)

Alan Sameev, after winning several regional contests, was also supported by AMU in his first international concert, in France in July. Alan is sitting closest to the camera in the attached photo.

Members of the group need monthly stipends of $75. Contributions can be made on a continuing basis to provide all or part of one of the stipends.
