Uzbekistan – Days in Vienna from March 14 – 17, 2019

We would like to thank everyone who made this event possible in Vienna, four days completely dedicated to the country and culture of Uzbekistan: the great artists and artisans, the Uzbek embassy in Vienna, our sponsor GTOUR and Irene Begovic from our partner association ARMONI.

The association KultEurasia presented the cultural wealth of Uzbekistan over four days at events, some of which took place in parallel. It all started with a Davul – Doira drum workshop with Ravshan Husniddinov from Uzbekistan and Askin Kaya from our Anatolian partner association ARMONI on Thursday, March 14.

The concert “Uzbekistan meets Anatolia” continued on Friday, March 15 in the foyer of the WUK workshops and culture house. The ARMONI association and its musicians Askin & Coskun Kardesler were also present at the concert. We are very happy that the experiment to unite artists and instruments of the two Turkic peoples on stage was such a success. The Uzbek music and dance group Shodlik leaded into the world of the historic Silk Road with music and dance. The brilliant opening with the Uzbek Karnay played by the leader of the group Shodlik, Dilmurod Mirzaev, and Ravshan Husniddinov accompanied by the Anatolian zurna and the big drum Davul was followed by a firework of impressions. The dancers Shirin Zhalilova and Katja Daniela Hillebrand enchanted with the elegant dances of the Silk Road. The Anatolian Yanik Kardesler gave a wonderful musical performance. Another highlight of the evening: Madina Muminova from Usekistan, who is studying German in Vienna, read a poem by the Uzbek national poet Alisher Navoi. During the break, the guests could enjoy the Uzbek national dish Plov, sponsored by GTOUR, the Uzbek embassy contributed Somsa (filled dumplings) and ARMONI provided, among other things, the desserts.

The two dancers taught Central Asian dance all day on March 16 and 17 in the Cultural Space of the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art. They gave an introduction to the different dance styles of Uzbekistan.

Rosa Vercoe traveled specially from London to the Festival of Uzbek Culture in Vienna. Rosa is particularly interested in Uzbek culture. She is actively involved in organizing cultural events for the British Uzbek Society in London. In her free time, Rosa writes blogs devoted to the culture and art of Central Asia. She also wrote a blog in Russian and Uzbek language about the Vienna Uzbekistan Days.

In parallel to the dance workshop, handicraft exhibitions and presentations took place on Saturday and Sunday in the “Atelier Mitte 7” and WUK workshops and culture house with Suzani specialists Dilshod Abdulkhaev and Nafisa Shakirova from Samarkand and the masters of miniature painting and metalworking from Buchara Feruz Temirov and Anvar Kurbanov. In addition to imparting a lot of background knowledge about their outstanding works of art, the artists / artisans also gave their guests the opportunity to look over their shoulders at work and try themselves.

Daniela Lieberwirth, chairwoman of KultEurasia, took the visitors on a virtual trip to Uzbekistan and provided information on various travel-related topics as well as the country, people and traditions.

On Saturday evening, artists and guests spent a wonderful musical evening in the “Thousand and One Nights Café Restaurant”.

We would also like to thank our wonderful guests for an unforgettable time and look forward to a repeat!

Many thanks also to the photographers Robert Hailwax and Amir Siddique for the wonderful memories!
