"Шабыт"(Inspiration) Orchestra of folk instruments

The history of the creation of the orchestra is connected with the history of the university. In 1959, at the S.Seifullin Kazakh Agrotechnical University, the dombyra circle was opened and began its work. In the same year, under the direction of director G. G. Duhov, instruments for orchestra were purchased from Karaganda by special order. The first leaders of the ensemble were well-known musicians Saylau Boranbayev and Zhumagali Kyzdarbekov.

The current leader is Gaukhar Yerkinovna Sarmantaeva.
