National Anthem of the Republic of Kazakhstan
My Kazakhstan (Kazakh: Менің — Қазақстаным!, Menin Qazaqstanim) is the current national anthem of Kazakhstan, adopted on January 7, 2006. It is based on a homonymous song written in 1956, with music by Shamshi Kaldayakov and lyrics by Jumeken Najimedenov.
This replaced Anthem of the Republic of Kazakhstan as the state anthem, which was used after independence. The original lyrics were modified by Nursultan Nazarbayev, the President of Kazakhstan, before the decree was issued.
Алтын күн аспаны,
Altin kun aspani,
Ejelden er degen,
Urpaqqa jol ashqan,
Qarsi algan waqitti,
Sky of golden sun,
From the antiquity
The way was opened to the posterity
It welcomed the time
