Great news. I don't know how it was done but they are back. http://soundcentralfestival.com/ is up and they have not been idle. During the recent quiet time they run a contest to write and record a new national anthem. Hold on to your socks. It's a young woman singing a rap song denouncing war. Only in Central Asia.
They say the festival is on. It's usually in October. I would hope for a little more explanation and news but I am just glad to see them back.
