Movie Monday: Yermek Serkebayev (Ермек Серкебаев)

“Yermek Serkebayev was and remains the king of the Kazakh opera.” - Minister of Culture Mukhtar Kul-Muhammed

Back in September I attended a performance at the Opera House that was a tribute to the Baritone singer Yermek Serkebayev.  While I had no idea who he was, I could tell that the elderly gentleman on stage crooning folk songs in his gravely voice at the opening of the performance was beloved by the audience.  At the end of the concert, a video played of Yermek Serkebayev singing in his younger years.  I was hooked and had to find out more.

So I present clips of Yermek Serkebayev.  I hope you enjoy.
