"Kerim Aiday" is a famous Kazakh folk song among ethnic Kazakhs in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. Kerim is the name of a Kazakh girl. The song expresses young Kazakh herders' thoughts for a loved one during seasonal migration. Kazakh nomadic herdsmen spend their lives following the water and pasture, providing their abundant livestock food and enabling the grassland to renew itself. Listen to Kazakh folk artists Ashar Zahan and Gulqira Maolet's performance of the song with dombra (a Kazakh musical string instrument) through VR in Fuhai County, Altay Prefecture, in Xinjiang.
