My Kazakhstan (1956 song)

From Kazakhstan Encyclopedia

Template:About Template:Refimprove My Kazakhstan (Template:Lang-kz) is a Kazakh patriotic song written in 1956 in response to the Soviet Virgin Lands program. There is debate over whether it was to celebrate the programme or to insist Soviet authorities should not turn Kazakhstan into Russia's corn belt.[1] Shamshi Kaldayakov composed the music and Jumeken Najimedenov wrote the lyrics.

The current national anthem of Kazakhstan is based on this song.
