Kazakhstan was a rather interesting pavilion.

Again seeing my Press Badge I was pulled to one side and asked if I needed a guided tour. 

We are led into a small auditorium with a musician playing live music on the stage while we enter. 

Then as they dim the lights a story is told in the film about a small boy who lives on the grasslands in a traditional yurt talking to his grandmother. 

As the movie ends and the lights turn back on then four traditionally dressed women enter the stage and do a short dance formation.

 After this the first musician will return and play and sing a song on his traditional guitar.

Finally we exit to an exhibition hall showing the candidate city Astana for the next expo. 

There are also traditional ceramics. 


I later found videos on youtube for all the shows including other cultural performances that I didnt see. Also the entrance lights up which I didnt see as they took me straight in

An enjoyable pavilion for the cultural performances. I will go again if I return to the Expo. I love Central Asia, plan to goto Uzbekistan soon, and have visited Xinjiang China (see blog http://blog.travelpod.com/travel-blog/londone7/16/tpod.html )
