Uzbekistan Concert Tour - September 2013

Nomad Dancers went on a cultural outreach tour of Uzbekistan accompanied by master choreographer Olimdjon Beknazarov. Dancers appeared on a popular TV talk show performing a dance with singing sensation Sherzod Bek. The team travelled to the historic cities of Samarqand and Bukhara to experience firsthand the glories of Uzbekistan's history. Returning to Tashkent, they performed on the largest stage in Tashkent, the Istiqlol Palace Theatre (photo below), in a live popular music concert by Sherzod Bek and his orchestra, with a sold-out audience of 5,000 adoring fans. Nomad Dancers participated in filming of Sherzod Bek's latest music video, and were interviewed for several TV reports about the first-ever artistic collaboration between Uzbek musicians and an American dance company. The U.S. Embassy invited the Nomad Dancers for their weekly Chai Chat Club, during which Uzbek students engaged in open dialogue with the group. Ambassador George Krol personally welcomed the dancers and discussed issues related to cultural exchange between Uzbekistan and the United States. Nomad Dancers look forward eagerly to future international collaborations and cultural exchanges. To read more about this trip check out our blog at:
