Keywords:Tengrianism, Tengrian calendar, oral professional music, kobyz, cultural heritage
The appeal of cultural heritage as a creative product, an "intellectual potential" having centuries-old traditions and unique value, such as the Tengrian calendar, is especially relevant today. The Tengrian calendar is a genre system of traditional music and the work of professional singers and instrumentalists, which represent lexical-semantic processes. The role of the Tengrian calendar in structuring the life cycle and age stratification of nomadic society is undeniable and necessary for the preservation of identity, as well as being a contextual connection with modernity. Possessing a huge field of information and semantic code, the Tengrian calendar, as a component of the spiritual and intellectual world process, is worthy not only of preservation and development, but also of comprehensive scientific research. The article studies the problems of traditional Kazakh culture belonging to the super-ethnic civilization of nomadic peoples. Based on the study, it was found that the calendar played a role in structuring the life cycle and age stratification of nomadic Kazakh society.
