Since 1992, in Karachay-Cherkessia, Kabardino-Balkaria and Adygea, 21 is celebrated on May Day of Sorrow for the victims of the Caucasian War (1817-1864), associated with the accession of the mountain regions of the North Caucasus to the Russian Empire. This event is historically significant, but at the same time, like any war, heavy for the people, resulting in great losses and sorrows.

After the suppression of the mountain unrest, the Adygs, the Abazins, the Abkhaz and the Ubykhs had to leave their native land and move to the countries of Asia Minor and the Balkans. This relocation brought a lot of suffering, unhappiness and difficult tests.

The deportation of these peoples is the subject of several musical compositions performed by the artists "Sound-M". We invite you today to remember these songs and listen to "Hymn of Cherkess" Magameta Dzybova, composition "Cherkessia" Angelica Nacheva"Son of Circassian" Azamat Pheskhova and "Circassians we" Aslana Tlebzu.
