The 45-year-old Kazak is an accordion enthusiast who fell in love with the instrument when he was 9 years old.

He was taking part in a wedding at a neighbor's home, and a guest began to play the accordion. Suddenly he was attracted by the beautiful music and couldn't help touching the instrument during the break. Excitement filled him and he wanted to have his own accordion.

While Dosanhan's family was not very rich, two years later his father bought him an accordion after squeezing the money out from daily expenses.

At first, he taught himself by listening to music from the loudspeaker at school and from TV, and then he was admitted by a music class at Tacheng Normal School and began a systematic study of the accordion.
