Korki Butchek (correct spelling, as evidenced in the book "Touristic Guidings to Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan/Touristic Guidings to Minor Nation of U.S. and A.") is a fictional Kazakh musician. Korki Butchek was created by Sacha Baron Cohen, the same man responsible for the Borat Sagdiyev character.
According to the book, Butchek was born in 1950 and was "always most proficient at musical abilities" because "by age 28 could play chords A, A# and G# on a guitars". He is also said to appear on "Kazakh Idol" as a judge, alongside "an angry homosexual" and a prostitute, "just like in American version".
The book claims that Butchek has released almost 4780 albums (3128 of which were written and recorded by Butchek himself; the remaining 1652 are simply Western recordings that have been stolen and renamed to make it appear as if Korki Butchek had released them).
"Bing Bang", a song described in the book as "his international number one smashhit", was referenced in a scene in the movie "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan". It apparently featured on Butchek's 3027th album. In reality, a short version of the song can be found on the internet.
