Suyunbai Aronuly (1815-1898) was an akyn, a master of improvisation. He was born and died in the village Karakystak, situated in Zhambyl district of Almaty region. 
 
His works were first published in 1935, the collection of poems 'Ak Kyyk' (A white fallow deer) was published only in 1976. Such Kazakh akyns like Zhambyl Zhabayev, Kenen Azerbaev, Maykot, Umbetali, Barmak and others considered themselves to be followers of Suyunbai and continued the traditions of his school.
 
Thanks to him, the Kazakhs know about the heroic epics of the Ili Kazakh warriors, in Kazakh language batyrs such as Otegen, Karasay, Suranshi and Sauryk.
