On November 13, in Ufa, as part of the international festival of Tatar songs named after Rashid Vagapov, an evening in memory of the national artist of Russia and Tatarstan, the great Tatar singer Ilgam Shakirov, was held at the main concert venue of the city. This concert was supported by the President of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov.
Before the concert, the chairmen of the parliaments of Tatarstan and Bashkortostan laid flowers at the monument to the Tatar folk poet Gabdulla Tukay. We remind you that the monument was unveiled in Ufa in April this year during the Days of the Republic of Tatarstan in the Republic of Bashkortostan.
Farid Mukhametshin, speaking at the concert, noted that the work of one of the brightest and most beloved performers Ilgam Shakirov is a symbol of a generation, and his creative heritage is the common heritage of the fraternal peoples of Tatarstan and Bashkortostan. He also emphasized that holding such evenings is of great importance, since it strengthens cultural ties and enriches the spiritual life of the both republics.
