Gala-show of laureates of the IV all-Russian contest of jest song has taken place in Ufa Congress-Hall on November 17. 80 best singers – winners of zone contests from 30 regions of the country have gathered in the capital RB.

The contest consisted of three stages. Regional competitions have taken place in Ulan-Ude, Kazan and Nizhniy Novgorod. Artistic collectives and singers from among people with poor hearing and deaf singers were taking part in them, including students and pupils of boarding schools.

Every performance consisted of two compositions- one national and another one – from repertoire of the 80s last century.

Three bands presented Republic of Bashkortostan at the show.
