Uzbek singer Sevara Nazarkhan is a winner of the Best Asian Artist award from BBC Radio 3 and has collaborated with high-profile international artists. Nazarkhan, who sings in Russian and Uzbek and plays the doutar (a medieval Central Asian lute), began her career in the girl group Sideris, but real domestic and international popularity arrived when she went solo.

French producer Hector Zazou worked on her 2003 album "Yol Bo'lsin", which was released to critical acclaim, and she later provided vocals for the 2005 Afro Celt Sound System album "Volume 5: Anatomic".

Like other major world-music artists, Nazarkhan doesn't limit herself to ethnic material, trying to achieve the right mix of contemporary music and folk.

The show at 16 Tonn marks the release of the singer's new Russian-language album, "Tak Legko" ("So Easy"), on which Akvarium's Boris Grebenshchikov and Lyapis Trubetskoi's Sergei Mikhalok collaborated.
