She is graduated from the Kazakh National Conservatory named after Kurmangazy, and is interested in the intersection of traditional music and contemporary music. As a performer-composer-improviser, she is seeking ways to expand the musical potential of the qobyz. Tokzhan has been active in international projects, and traveled to the USA in 2016 to participate in Bandistan, a programme sponsored by CEC ArtsLink with funding from the U.S. Department of State, which brought talented young musicians from Central Asia together with members of Bang on a Can, one of New York’s premier contemporary music groups.
