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 sing a song of this kind, to do something meaningful for my people,” Faty says, “which would exalt our heroes and inspire generations. I turned to many authors, set forth my idea, but no one agreed to write a text on such a serious topic. Then I decided to embody it myself. Although before that I had never written songs. So, little by little, verse after verse, the track “Alana” was born, which I call a “heroic song”, because it tells about those whom we are proud of. The composition is danceable, and its concept is disclosed in the way it was intended - a serious thought was presented without any reason, so that the meaning was easily accessible to everyone. ”
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.
“The whole team spent 3 days in the mountains, in the village of Fiagdon,” Fati Tsarikaeva says. “We got up at 4 in the morning to shoot the sunrise, climbed the highlands. The views are amazing! It was very difficult to work, because there was an incredible heat, we were all in national costumes. Our legendary state ensemble Alan also starred in the video, and we danced at the top, in the places where our ancestors once lived. There are still ancient settlements that are now being restored little by little. It was part of the idea - first to show old Ossetia, and by the end of the clip - the present time, Ossetians, descendants of the Alans, worthy sons of their people, who became famous all over the world. ”
Among the outstanding personalities involved in the video are maestro Valery Gergiev, People’s Artist of Russia Felix Tsarikati, Russian football player, CSKA midfielder and Russian national team Alan Dzagoev, freestyle wrestler, three-time Olympic champion Arthur Taymazov, Russian professional boxer, IBF World Champion in IBF 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 clip to remain in history, in the memory of the audience. I am proud that I am Ossetian and want to convey to everyone that we have such great people that we are very proud of. They work in different areas: here, and doctors, and scientists, and athletes, and people and arts. This is our wealth, and we are very happy to share it with our audience! ”, Fati Tsarikaeva comments.
