Dear friends, as I was always said, I like to travel to another countries) But, in the reality, I've never been traveled before... Now, finally I've got the chance to go somewhere out of Uzbekistan! And me and my boyfriend and guitarist Sasha finally flew away to the nearest country - Kazakhstan. I really hope that it's a great chance for us to work and get some money for making my dreams about trip to the USA come true. It's a first step on our way to America! I wish someday we could visit USA and other countries and I could meet real banjo players and my banjohangout friends!!! How I wish so... 

I've been in Schuchinsk, and now we stay in Astana - the capital city of Kazakhstan. And right now I'm writing this blog from Almaty - it's also Kazakhstan's city. I also was in Shimkent, Kazakhstan on the wedding of my friends. And then I retuned to Tashkent, my hometown some days ago, and met with my friends there. And then we came to Almaty in the first time. Of course, it's a very nice city, but I'm still dream of America. 

I've found that noone plays bluegrass banjo in Kazakhstan too. So I'm the only banjo player in Uzbekistan and in Kazakhstan... 

I want to become a traveler (Arkansas Traveler, haha))) and adventurer! I always trying to find any adwentures!!!)) And I wish my banjo adventure will continue when I'll reach America... Dreams, dreams))

It's not all that difficult to find banjo players in the U.S., even if you restrict your search to the bluegrass players. There are a LOT more if yo0u consider widening your search to include those who play jazz, tenor, classical, folk-rock, etc.

Last weekend my wife and I attended the annual 'Folklife' festival in Washington D.C. Each year one country sponsors a main display of its music, cuisine, literature, handicrafts, industries, etc. This year's main exhibitor was Hungary (YUM!), but one of the secondary exhibits was of cultures which were in danger of having their language die out due to a dwindling number of speakers. One of those on display was Kalma, and they had a two-stringed folk instrument with a totally unpronounceable name in their booth. They were (pleasantly) surprised when I picked it up and started playing 'Oh Susanna' on it; they started dancing to the tune.
