A video of a Kazakhstan woman playing a musical string instrument against the backdrop of a pick-coloured lake has gone viral on the internet. The clip was shared on Twitter by former Minister of International Development of Norway Erik Solheim.
The one-minute-long video shows the artist, who is said to be only 23-year-old, playing melodious tunes on the dombra, a long-necked Kazakh musical instrument. Mr Solheim captioned the post, "A 23-year-old musician, is playing in Lake Kobeituz, a salt lake in Kazakhstan that turns pink every several years. Fashion, nature, vibes ... beautiful."

The video opens to show the young woman sitting on a chair in the shallow region of the lake holding the instrument.

One user wrote, "Sir! Playing music is a Creative Act! And And And in Creativity, Life Change! Beauty being Creative." Another said, "World is so full of beautiful miracles."
"This is blowing my mind," added third, while a fourth wrote, "This is fantastic, heck it looks like it's straight out of fantasy even. I love that this exists where people can touch and experience it somewhere on this planet."
Lake Kobeituz is a body of water located in the Akmolinskaya region of Kazakhstan that turns a shade of pink every few years. It is believed that the presence of a particular type of algae is what gives the lake the pink tint.Click for more trending news
