Friend­ship and Spir­i­tual Prox­im­ity

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - CULTURE AND ARTS -

Na­man­gan has played host to the Korean Fes­ti­val 2017 oc­ca­sioned to the 25th an­niver­sary of the es­tab­lish­ment of diplo­matic re­la­tions between the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan and the Repub­lic of Korea and the 80th an­niver­sary of eth­nic Kore­ans re­sid­ing in our coun­try.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of ed­u­ca­tional and cul­tural in­sti­tu­tions, na­tional cul­tural cen­ters, stu­dents and stu­dents, young tal­ents, cul­tural and art fig­ures took part in the open­ing cer­e­mony of the event or­ga­nized by the Em­bassy of the Repub­lic of Korea in our coun­try to­gether with the Na­man­gan re­gional hokimiyat.

The fes­ti­val started with a com­pe­ti­tion of draw­ings «Friend­ship of Uzbek­istan and Korea», or­ga­nized in the Na­man­gan chil­dren's cen­ter «Barkamol avlod», among pupils of gen­eral ed­u­ca­tion schools and chil­dren's schools of mu­sic and art.

“This con­test was some­what dif­fer­ent from the usual ones be­cause it was pre­sented not with pre­vi­ously pre­pared com­po­si­tions, but with im­pro­vi­sa­tions on the sub­ject,” says Erkin Az­i­zov, a mem­ber of the Na­man­gan branch of the Cre­ative As­so­ci­a­tion of Artists of Uzbek­istan of the Academy of Arts, a holder of the Dust­lik Or­der. “The cre­ative ap­proach and skills of such par­tic­i­pants as Sergey Kur­bonov, Se­vara Isayeva, Diy­ora Karim­boeva, Anas­ta­sia She­gay, Karam­ina Babi­nova, Said Tukhtasi­nov re­ceived a spe­cial eval­u­a­tion from the jury.”

A con­cert pro­gram of Korean na­tional and con­tem­po­rary songs and dances per­formed by the South Korean “Last For One” B-boy group and “Ko­ryo” en­sem­ble was pre­sented at the Na­man­gan re­gional the­ater of mu­si­cal drama, as well as a dis­play of South Korean fea­ture films.

«I am very glad that the first such event is held in Na­man­gan,» said Am­bas­sador Ex­tra­or­di­nary and Plenipo­ten­tiary of the Repub­lic of Korea to our coun­try, Kwon Yong Woo. “The Uzbek and Korean peo­ples have a sim­i­lar cul­ture. Such qual­i­ties as dili­gence, gen­eros­ity, re­spect for el­ders and con­cern for the younger are in­her­ent in both our peo­ples. At this fes­ti­val once again found their vivid re­flec­tion of the strength of friend­ship between our peo­ples and spir­i­tual close­ness.”
