Tcell will support the cultural traditions on the “Roof of the World”-2019!
The International Festival “Roof of the World”, the largest event of live ethnic music in Tajikistan, will be held from July 26 to July 28 in the city of Khorog. Over the past years, Tcell has been a regular partner of the festival, supporting the cultural development of society, striving to preserve traditions and cultural exchange.
The Roof of the World festival has been held in Khorog since 2008. What began as a small local festival of ethnic music has now become an international celebration of cultural heritage. This year, musicians from Uzbekistan, USA, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, India, from the capital of Dushanbe and regions of the Republic of Tajikistan will take part in the music program of the festival.
The “Roof of the World” is an incredible immersion in living traditions. Rich history, incredible traditions, unique heritage of different peoples of Tajikistan, near and far abroad meet annually at the festival.
Like last year, Tcell will take an active part in the festival. Especially for the youngest guests, a kids’ zone will be organized from Tcell, where kids will be able to draw, show their own creativity, and play fun games under supervision. In addition, a company pavilion will be installed right at the festival, where you can get advice from highly qualified specialists on any issues of mobile communication, select and connect the most needed services.
