After the concert, Eldar gave an interview to our music publishing house.

- Eldar, we visited your solo concert and we really liked it! Tell me, is it true that it will become your traditional annual concert in Nalchik?

- I am very glad that you liked it. Yes, I plan to hold a concert in Nalchik annually. My viewers inspire me to this. But, besides everything, the annual concert is a great motivation to work fruitfully so that to delight our viewers with something new and interesting each time. When you hear from them a lot of bright reviews, I really want them to be no less the next time.

- Which of your songs is your favorite?

- I find it difficult to answer this question. ... In each song, the author of which I am, different emotions are embedded. They are all different, but equally expensive. Therefore, I can not single out one. Perhaps this comparison is not appropriate, but they are like children. But the parents of the children are more, and they cannot love less.

- During the concert, a touching song was sounded - the anthem of the Charity Foundation “Above the Rainbow”: “Who, if not us.” I would especially like to mention it. Who was the author of this song? Do you cooperate with this foundation, yes?

- The author of the lyrics of this song is Madina Curtieva, and Anzor Haupa wrote the music and the arrangement. It is under the motto “Who, if not us,” that Mila Kachlaeva’s Foundation “Above the Rainbow” works. In another way, and you will not tell. She has united many people from different fields of activity with the goal of helping sick children. Each of us helps what we can. Often, help is simply to have fun with the children: to congratulate them on the holiday, happy birthday, etc. For some children who do not leave the hospital 365 days in a year, these emotions are sometimes more effective than drugs.

- Eldar, very soon a very important holiday will be held for the whole of our country - Victory Day in the Great Patriotic War. What does this holiday mean to you? Are you planning to do something this day?

- Victory Day is a special holiday for me with a special atmosphere. I would like, firstly, that today's youth, today's children born and raised in peacetime, never experience the horror of war, and secondly, never forgot those who fought, died, and survived in those conditions when it seemed that it was already impossible to survive.
Am I preparing something for this day? On the ninth of May many events take place in our republic, in which I regularly and with pleasure take part. I also have plans to release a song to the words of Kerim Otarov “A Letter from a Soldier” dedicated to a war hero.

- We wish you success in your creative work, strength and creative longevity! And may your path always illuminate the guiding star of luck! Continue to delight us with your wonderful talent and gorgeous voice!
