A connoisseur of the Adyghe folklore and folk rituals brought to life another idea - to show a choreographic production for the author's composition, created in a unique style.
“I present to your attention a track that takes me into the distance! - Timur says, - I invite you to plunge into the romance of the Circassian merrymaking of Dzhegu. The idea of the composition was born 25 years ago, in the era of the 90s, when communication with the Circassian diasporas of the whole world began. We tried to convey those feelings when the curtain fell.
The manner and style of playing the instrument in this composition is different in that it uses a very complex fur technique, a sophisticated finger tremolo technique, and, of course, the basic melody of the piece is kept. All these three methods should go simultaneously. "
“Haha Jagu” at one time acquired a unique choreography: from an invitation to a circle of partners, to the completion of the dance. To show this, Timur Losanov decided to make a clip filled with emotional colors of the jagu and embodying the energy of the composition.

Video filming took place in Nalchik. According to Timur, the warm fraternal atmosphere at the site allowed to meet one shooting day, and the operator and editor Murat Dzuev eventually prepared a high-quality video, corresponding to the author's idea.
“The idea was to show that modern young Circassians, wherever in the world they are, remain adherents of their culture, history, and folklore,” Timur explains. “The bar counter in the background of the frame is not an accident. It is one of the original references to the fact that no matter how modern we are, if you are Circassian, then get up and dance with me! "
The young heroes of the video are not professional dancers, but ordinary students from the Circassian diaspora of Turkey. They showed a youth dance without a partner in order to emphasize the energy of the choreography even more vividly within the framework of the author's idea. In the original, this is a pair dance.
“From the point of view of choreography, they used very bright and memorable steps, drawings, movements of the legs and hands, clearly beating the rhythm of the melody. And this greatly impresses the viewer! ”- summed up Timur Losanov.
