Biography:
"Yalla" can be described as the most popular music group in former Soviet Central Asian republics. Nowadays this vocal group is referred as the "father" of pop music of Uzbekistan. "Yalla" is an Uzbek word for a song accompanied by dancing. "Yalla" has become a popular icon in Uzbekistan, frequently serving as cultural ambassadors to international festivals or meetings abroad. The members of "Yalla" are alumni of Ostrovsky Theatrical Art Institute and Ashrafi State Conservatory in Tashkent. Their music incorporates traditional ethnic folk tunes and poetry of Uzbekistan and other Central Asian and Middle Eastern cultures, along with contemporary pop and dance influences, into a unique international blend. They perform songs in more than 10 languages, including Arabic, Farsi, Hindi, Nepalese and French as well as Uzbek and Russian. Formed in the early 1970's, Yalla has appeared on Soviet national television as well as performed in Moscow and elsewhere in the Soviet Union, and on concert tours in Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America, including featured appearances at the "Voice of Asia" festival.
