A CD is dedicated to the living musical heritage of the Karakalpak bards. It is the fruit of a fieldwork inventory conducted in 2010 under the auspices of UNESCO, in cooperation with cultural institutions from Uzbekistan and Karakalpakstan. It is published within the UNESCO/Korean Project "Creative Industries Development for the Diversity of Cultural Expressions - Strengthening the sustainability of crafts industry in Uzbekistan".

The 22 songs on this CD were selected with the help of several well-known musicians, including Qarimbay Tinibaev, the famous baqsi, girdjek player and professor at the College of Arts in Nukus, the capital of Karakalpakstan.
