My Kazakhstan (Kazakh: Менің Қазақстаным, Meniñ Qazaqstanım) is the national anthem of Kazakhstan, adopted on January 7, 2006.[1] It is based on a homonymous song written in 1956, with music by Shamshi Kaldayakov and lyrics by Jumeken Najimedenov.[2] This replaced the 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.[3]

Official lyrics

Kazakh Latin script English translation

Алтын күн аспаны,
Алтын дән даласы,
Ерліктің дастаны -
Еліме қарашы!

Ежелден ер деген,
Даңқымыз шықты ғой,
Намысын бермеген,
Қазағым мықты ғой!

Менің елім, менің елім,
Гүлің болып егілемін,
Жырың болып төгілемін, елім!
Туған жерім менің — Қазақстаным!

Ұрпаққа жол ашқан,
Кең байтақ жерім бар.
Бірлігі жарасқан,
Тәуелсіз елім бар.

Қарсы алған уақытты,
Мәңгілік досындай.
Біздің ел бақытты,
Біздің ел осындай!

Қайырмасы (2 pem)

Altın kün aspanı,
Altın dän dalası,
Erliktiñ dastanı -
Elime qaraşı!

Ejelden er degen,
Dañqımız şıqtı ğoy,
Namısın bermegen,
Qazağım mıqtı ğoy!

Meniñ elim, meniñ elim,
Güliñ bolıp egilemin,
Jırıñ bolıp tögilemin, elim!
Twğan jerim meniñ — Qazaqstanım!

Urpaqqa jol aşqan,
Keñ baytaq jerim bar.
Birligi jarasqan,
Täwelsiz elim bar.

Qarsı alğan waqıttı,
Mäñgilik dosınday.
Bizdiñ el baqıttı,
Bizdiñ el osınday!

Qayırması (2 rem)

Sky of golden sun,
Steppe of golden seed,
Legend of courage -
Take a look at my country!

From the antiquity
Our heroic glory emerged,
They did not give up their honor
My Kazakh people are strong!

My motherland, my motherland,
As your flower I will grow from you,
As your song I will stream, my country!
My native land – My Kazakhstan!

The way was opened to the descendants
By the vast land I have.
Its unity is proper,
I have an independent country.

It welcomed the tests of time
Like an eternal friend,
Our country is blessed,
Our country is such!

Chorus (twice)

2012 sporting event incident

In March 2012, a parody national anthem, O Kazakhstan, featured in the soundtrack of the movie Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, was mistakenly played at the International Shooting Grand Prix in Kuwait. The Gold-winning medalist, Maria Dmitrienko, stood on the dais while the entire parody was played. The team complained, and the award ceremony was re-staged. The incident apparently resulted from the wrong song being downloaded from YouTube at the last minute.[4][5] Senior officials in Kazakhstan were furious with the error and vowed to make a complaint to their Kuwaiti counterparts.
