THE NARRATOR САГЫНБАЙ МАНАСЧЫ
The Soviet government entrusted Ybrai Abdrakhmanov with transcribing Sagynbai Orozbakov’s version of the epic “Manas”, but then forgot about it. In the course of four years Ybrai succeeded in writing down only the first part of the trilogy because “Manas” was so voluminous.
