      The history of highland nations is not written with a pen, but with dirks, sickles, hooves of horses. Their songs are not written with inks, but with blood and eyewater. Folk song- is a lullaby- the first song that a person hear. In folk songs - lovers suffer, heroes die, enemies are anathematized, dead are bemoaned. People fight, work and dream about the best future in this songs.
      Long ago many treasures have turned into dust, but songs are steel alive. When we listen and read them, they seem to be vices of our ancestors. It's amazing, but how exactly they have shown various images: images of nature, images of people, etc. We hear their hearts beating, their pain and craving of happiness.
      Till the end of days the distinguished son of lakian nation - Efendi Kapiyev - has been collecting national songs. He has been surching for them everywhere: at the burials, at the weddings, by the fires, at the cradles and fireplaces.
