Aidana Namazbekova, 13, lives in Lipenka, one of the oldest municipalities in Issyk-Kul region in northern Kyrgyzstan. Since her early childhood she loves to play komuz, a beautiful sound-ing Kyrgyz national music instrument. Until recently, Aidana had to travel 50 km twice a week to attend komuz classes in Kara-kol.
