Kazakhstan has confirmed that they will be competing in the 2nd edition of the Bala Turkvizyon Song Contest in Turkey.

The official VK account of Bala dawisi has confirmed that the country will be participating in the Bala Turkvizyon Song Contest 2016. It appears that as previously reported the winner of Bala dawisi 2016 will not directly be announced as the countries participant in the Bala Turkvizyon Song Contest 2016. The account stated that:

Kazakhstan will participate in the second children’s song contest Bala Turkvision Song Contest – 2016 which will be held in Turkey. Who will represent our country know about it after the contest Voice of Bala (Bala dawisi).

The confirmation of Kazakh participation in this years contest appears to signal that this years event will go ahead. Doubts had been growing as to whether the contest would be held due to a number of statements to Eurovoix World from delegations who stated that they were still waiting for information about this years contest in Turkey.
