Ulytau: a unique ethno-rock from Kazakhstan

October 3 2006

Ulytau - a unique musical project from Kazakhstan. The band's name translates into Russian as "Great Mountain". Members of the same high quality and beautifully performed as the treatment of classical works by Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi, and ethnic products, bringing to the listener all the unique culture of their country.

According to the musicians, their music falls under the category of ethno-rock. Listening Ulytau, can not remember the legacy of the legends like Ritchie Blackmore and Roger Waters. In addition, each member of the group differs from other work Dream Theater. However, it should be noted that unlike many other teams fall back on borrowing, the project Ulytau remains true to his path.

Here is what the group of world-renowned producer Tim Palmer, took the first album Ulytau «Jumyr-Kylysh»:
"I always wanted to work with musicians of different genres - from Ozzy Osbourne to Tears For Fears, and often received a new experience and great pleasure of changing styles.

Draft Ulytau sent me from Moscow producer Tabriz Shahidi. In their music, I liked the mixture of elements of hard rock and traditional ethnic music. The combination of screaming rock guitars with ethnic instruments such as violin dombra and creates a completely unique sound. Musicians in the band really played well, and most importantly, know how to extract the necessary quality of the sounds from their instruments. In addition, the album was recorded very dignified, which made the process of information is particularly enjoyable.

Max owns a guitar virtuoso - I think that he continues the tradition of such guitarists as Zach Wilde and Steve Vai. A unique sound dombra and violin (quite traditional tools) perfectly aligned with modern arrangements. I wish the guys great success and new victories. "

Ulytau have already visited with concerts not only in Russia but in Germany, England, Scotland, Poland, Turkey, USA, China and Japan. 12 October, a group again will visit Moscow and will give a concert in Moscow club "Orange".
