    This 19-year-old Russian girl is a Kyrgyz folk music virtuoso Maria Naumova, also known as the "Orchestra Girl." She can play ten instruments some of which may sound pretty exotic.

    In this video, you can hear Maria play Kyrgyz folk music on a Komuz, an ancient Kyrgyz instrument.

    An ethnic Russian, Maria is perceived by many as a musician who is building "bridges" between Russia and Kyrgyzstan.
