On April 3, 2024 at the Kyrgyz National University named after Jusup Balasagyn a poetry evening organized by the Foundation "Roza Otunbaeva Initiative" under the title "Spring, Poet" was held.


The works of young poets Jibek Sapar kyzy, Ulan Doolotov, Jypara Kutpidinova and students of the National University were presented.


The evening was opened by Jenish Beksultanov, Vice-Rector of the Kyrgyz National University named after Jusup Balasagyn. "We would like to thank the Roza Otunbaeva Initiative Foundation for supporting poets and organizing such an event at our university. On behalf of our Rector, Tolobek Abdrakhmanov, we welcome you and wish our young talents to dedicate their important and meaningful poems to the people, and may the world of poetry grow".


Roza Kaiykova, Executive Director of the Foundation, said that until 2016, Kyrgyz poets and poetry in general were neglected. Roza Otunbaeva initiated the organization of "Poetry Evenings" aimed at supporting the work of famous and young poets and developing cultural and cognitive recreation of citizens and guests of the capital.


"Poetry Evenings" were held for the first time in March 2016 at the National Philharmonic, named after Toktogul Satylganov, in honor of the 80th anniversary of Mayramkan Abylkasymova. Since then, this initiative has been held every month, and today's event was the 47th, with the participation of more than 127 poets. Taking this opportunity, I would like to thank the administration of the National University, the public and the New Wave Literary Club for their support in organizing this event. And I wish the young poets a lot of success in sharpening their pens and winning the title of People's Poet," Roza Kaiykova expressed her wish.


In the first part of the evening "Spring, Poet" songs about childhood feelings, parents, first love, friendship were sung. After that Uzak Urmat performed a melodious song "Zhurok satam" written by Ulan Dоlоtov. Following the theme of this melodious song, the girls joined in the singing battle, which brought applause from the audience.


The third part of the evening was accompanied by poems of poets and melodious compositions. The event ended with Kaniet Sagynbekova's performance of the melodious song "Kusalyk" written by Zhypara Kutpidinova.
