She is a multi-instrumentalist from Kyrgyzstan. She graduated from the Kyrgyz National Conservatory named after K. Moldobasanova, where she studied guitar. Parallel to her conservatory studies, Makhabat studied kyl-kiyak at the Bishkek-based Centre Ustatshakirt, a project created and supported by the Aga Khan Music Initiative that cultivates new approaches to musical performance and pedagogy and helps talented young musicians reformulate traditional music in contemporary languages of art. In addition to her mastery of the canonical repertoire for kyl-kiyak, Makhabat has performed internationally in a variety of projects that bring together Kyrgyz musical instruments and traditional musical forms with artists from the West.
