Poetry, and generally literature, is inseparable from music. Indeed, often - it is music that gives rise to the mood and artistic image. Among the works of the great composer - the waltz king Shamshi Kaldayakov there are many songs written in the words of Yerkesh Ibrahim - «Ақ бидай маржан», «Биші қайың», «Кел Бурабайға», «Шынарым».
Throughout the career, there was almost no topic that would not touch the poet’s pen. Starting with lyric poems, he sang the heroism of boys and girls during the Great Patriotic War. Many poems by Ye. Ibrahim were devoted to the labor exploits of people in peacetime. The collections “Life does not die”, “Starry years”, “Young wings”, “Sources of life”, “With all their voices”, “Sea of love” told about them. His songs and poems, ballads inspired the miners of Karaganda, Temirtau metallurgists, conquerors of the virgin lands. Among his works there are verses praising the nature of his native land, his favorite places of childhood.
