Kairat Primordial said “StarHit” what was it like to be the first saved from the retirement party and what challenges he had to overcome in your career.
How I got the idea to try themselves in “the Voice”?
I last year sent applications for similar competitions, including the “Voice”, but passed on the project “Main stage”. This time we decided again to take a chance to be on the First channel. I was invited, and at the end of July I came to the casting. People often ask: what is the most difficult stage? For me it was the casting. There are no shots, and about what you arrived in Moscow, nobody knows. For me to get to ripe listening was happiness – not for nothing was driving from Bishkek. When passed this stage, I decided – then come what may.—
Your family and friends reacted to your involvement in the competition?
This ambitious project, which many only dream. It is a great luck. I read the reviews, comments, support fellow. I have every time in rehearsal and shooting to come from Bishkek, and it is quite expensive. I ask a lot of questions – if I have sponsors. I think fan support is more important than financial assistance. Fate gives the opportunity every time to come here. —
How did you begin your career as a musician?
I come from a region in Bishkek, ten years ago. I had no idea how it will be. Was only a dream – to sing and to conquer the capital and the country. At first it was difficult – I worked construction, in a bakery, even a guard! Of course, my physique it’s hard to believe. And once met a classmate who was a singer, he was introduced to his producer. She liked one of my original songs, we recorded it, shot a video. The song blew up the national charts. But then something went wrong – I let a song after song, filmed clips, but the resonance was not like this. Decided that I need to work on yourself. Wanted to get a musical education, but not received. Started singing in restaurants to hone skills. Received an offer to go to Kazakhstan and sing in a cover band. The work was intense, six to seven hours a day. —
That changed after a trip to Russia to participate in the “Main stage”?
I have more work, but in Bishkek. About me found out, was invited to various concerts, corporate events. —
Why, then, decided to go on “the Voice”?
I want to find a producer, to try to start a career here in Russia. Here, of course, a wider audience, many concert halls and venues. But I understand that most things start very difficult. If there is no proposal, then return to Kyrgyzstan to continue to work in our country. But then will try their hand also in the American “Voice”.
You were on the verge of having to leave the project. The feeling when Dima Bilan took?
I was shocked when he chose me. I honestly did not expect. After this lesson the lesson to be learned – after all, can not be overemphasized. Did not expect that Bilan will save me. Only after some time realized that I was so glad of that. The project is possible.—
It was a shame that Leonid Agutin has not chosen you?
Resentment was not, because it’s still a mentor, he’s looking with his eyes on the team. Apparently, it is something I saw. I with this decision, can’t argue, he’s right anyway. He also has a goal to win as a coach.
Do you feel any competition between the participants?
To participate in the contests it seemed to me that all conspire together, the relationship strained. But really, we are all creative people. Understand that any of us can retire from the project. Relate to each other more subtly. In the team yesterday had their own aura. The Bilan took as their own, as if from the beginning, was with them. So no passions.—
Somehow help each other?
We have our own chat where we post all the time, even those who dropped out after duels. At rehearsals everyone filmed on camera, to listen, to see the cons more work. Advised what and how to do better. We each other are very helpful.
Who come together to support the project?
With me my wife came and friends who live in Moscow, come to support me. Home sick sons – one seven years old, goes to first grade, the second year and nine months. Senior to echo all my songs, even the younger starts to sing! He said: “Show me how Papa sings”, and he begins hoarsely to repeat me.
You will be happy if kids go in your footsteps?
Of course! I see that the senior has all the data, right now he is learning how to beatbox. For me it’s amazing and he’s really good at. I will only support children. Even I think by the time they grow up, become their producer.
