Editorial Review:

Product Description:
2007 release. Recordings from 1969 of Tuvan Folk music and throat-singing with liner notes by Dr. Pekka Gronow of the University of Helsinki. With the advent of the Folk music revival in the '60s, a new interest in Tuvan music swept through Asia and Eastern Europe. Capitalizing on this appeal, these 16 recordings were issued in 1969 in the Soviet Union. Dust-to-Digital is proud to reissue for the first time on compact disc these traditional performances including several khoomei songs plus one modern take on the classic Tuvan sound. In khoomei, the singer simultaneously produces two more distinct musical notes: a low, sustained bass note and a flute-like higher note. Tuvan sheep herders often practiced khoomei in an effort to calm animals and appease spirits. The effect is hypnotic, eerie, and drone-like, unlike any sound you've heard come out of a cowboy. The Republic of Tuva lies between Russia and Mongolia in the Altai Mountains, at the geographical center of Asia. Tuva is a land of mountains, lakes and rivers.
