File:Kyrgyz Musicians in Karakol.jpg


A scan from a 35mm photograph which I took at a yurt camp at Karakol in Kyrgyzstan in July 2002. The musicians are playing a selection of traditional Kyrgyz instruments, including komuz (stringed instrument in centre foreground) and sybyzgy (transverse flute), and were being filmed for Kyrgyz television.

This scan is in the Public Domain (however, I retain ownership and copyright of the original negative and any higher-resolution scans derived from it).
