1959年春天,八一电影制片厂导演张加毅带领摄制组赴新疆拍摄记录片《绿色的原野》,拍摄的地点选定在伊犁地区可克达拉农场。新疆这块美丽的土地,这 里勤劳、淳朴、能歌善舞的民族,这里的一切都使张加毅赞叹不已。他在激动中写出了《草原之夜》的歌词后,交给作曲家田歌,田歌用40分钟写出了这首后来蜚 声海内外的名歌。1990年,《草原之夜》被联合国教科文组织命名为“东方小夜曲”。

歌词:
美丽的夜色多沉静,草原上只留下我的琴声。
想给远方的姑娘写封信耶,可惜没有邮递员来传情。
等到千里雪消融,等到草原上送来春风。
可克达拉改变了模样耶,姑娘就会来伴我的琴声。
姑娘就会来伴我的琴声,姑娘就会来伴我的琴声。
