The long-awaited video premiere took place - the video "Alana" was released Albina и Fati Tsarikayevs!
This is a large-scale project in which outstanding Ossetians were involved, who have achieved great success in various fields: in art, in sports, in science and others. Their names are at the hearing, the whole of Ossetia is proud of them, and it was with them that the Tsarikaev sisters decided to introduce their listeners all over the world.
“I have long wanted to perform this kind of song, to do something meaningful for my people,” says Faty, “that would magnify our heroes and inspire generations. I turned to many authors, expounded my idea, but no one agreed to write a text on such a serious topic. Then I decided to embody it myself. Although I have never written songs before. So, little by little, verse after verse, the track “Alana” was born, which I call the “heroic song”, because it tells about those whom we are proud of. The composition is danceable, and its concept is unfolded as it was intended - a serious thought was presented without a touch, so that the meaning was readily accessible to all. ”
The success of the song gave rise to the idea for the video, and the sisters Tsarikaev decided to show in the video those who are proud of their people. For six months, the singer, along with the crew Murat Dzuyev and director Magomed Kumykov, filmed their characters in various locations, trying to adjust to the schedule of each. Then, high-key shots were taken high in the mountains of Ossetia.
“We lived in the mountains, in the village of Fiagdon, with the whole team of 3 of the day,” says Fati Tsarikayeva, “we got up at 4 in the morning to shoot the sunrise, we went up to the highlands. The views there are awesome! It was very difficult to work, because there was an incredible heat, we were all in national costumes. The video also starred our legendary state ensemble “Alan”, and we danced on the summit, in the places where our ancestors once lived. There still remained ancient settlements, which are now gradually recovering. It was part of the idea - first to show the old Ossetia, and by the end of the clip - the current time, the Ossetians, descendants of the Alans, worthy sons of their people, who became famous throughout the world. ”
Among the prominent personalities involved in the video are maestro Valery Gergiev, People’s Artist of Russia Felix Tsarikati, Russian footballer, midfielder of CSKA and the Russian team Alan Dzagoev, freestyle wrestler, three-time Olympic champion Arthur Taymazov, Russian professional boxer, IBF World champion the first heavyweight champion Murat Gassiev and many others.
Especially for this clip, designer Izolda Gochiyaeva created and sewed stylized vintage Ossetian costumes.
“I want this video to remain in history, in the memory of the audience. I am proud that I am an Ossetian and I want to convey to everyone that we have such great people that we are very proud of. They work in different fields: here there are doctors, scientists, athletes, people and the arts. This is our wealth, and we are very happy to share it with our public! ”, - comments Fati Tsarikayeva.
