Last year, above 2,000 musicians took part in the National Dombra Day concert. Dombra players arrived from all the corners of the country to attend the flashmob.
The National Dombra Day was established in 2018 by the decree of First President of Kazakhstan-Leader of the Nation Nursultan Nazarbayev. It is marked on the first Sunday of July.
