Format: Audio CD
Tuvan music has almost certainly remained consistent since the Mongol Golden Hoarde swept across Asia and into Europe in the Middle Ages. It has also attracted the attention of a number of highly respected Western musicians such as the late Frank Zappa. Some of Tuva's top musicians have learned from these encounters. Contemporary Tuvan musicians, whilst maintaining all the best aspects of their tradition, have learned some of the finer points of music as diverse as Celtic traditional music, not least Irish music, blues, jazz, West African music and avant garde and experimental music. Tuvan music is now maturing into a comfortable blend of a traditional music that encapsulates some of the subtler aspects of its newly found influences. This album epitomises that new found freedom of creativity and progress in Tuvan music. It should be highly recommended to all afficionados of modern 'ethnic' music.

I had a an old cassette tape of these and of course what cars come with cassette players nowadays, the music is brilliant it's guttural with really weird sounds which is thousands of years old. I don't play it very often admittedly as it's an acquired taste I do hear the music on the TV as background music and you should see the look of surprise on peoples faces when they ask "I wonder what that music is"? and I reply with the answer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing recording 4 Jan. 2009
By BookMan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I thought I'd look around for some recordings of Tuvan throat singing (and they're not that easy to find) but, thanks to the ability to download .MP3s from Amazon, I thought I'd give this disc a try. I'm not disappointed. I despise recordings of world music that utilize Western instruments and ideas in order to make something more palatable to the closed minded: this recording makes absolutely no attempt to do so and is absolutely fantastic! Yes, this music is extremely different than what most are used to listening to but, just the same, it provides an enthralling glimpse at how other cultures not only make music but also how they produce it using their own voices. For those that are unfamiliar with Tuvan throat singing (which usually feature men as they seem to be able to best produce the unique sounds heard here - due to the manner in which their throats differ from that of women), the music that is produced is extremely unique - those trained in this manner of singing can produce more than one sound at a time with the fundamental (lower) sound predominating but with an much higher sound (overtones) also very evident. Absolutely fascinating!

If you are interested in listening to a very unique form of music (and, no, it's not "funny"), I would recommend this recording to others.

I'm very grateful to have discovered this little gem on Amazon and
5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the Tuvan disks for the academic 11 Dec. 2009
By Michael A. Duvernois - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you just want to hear the popularized throat singing then I'd go for one of the Huun Huur Tu disks. This Smithsonian Folkways recording was recorded in Tuva in 1987 and tries to capture some of the range of traditional Tuvan music including throat singing (including a variety of different throat singing techniques), traditional love and animal husbandry songs, animal imitations, and exploration of the native instruments.

It's a sampler of the Tuvan music and makes it clear that there's a lot more than just the throat singing going on in Tuvan music. But the ethnomusicology approach, with field recordings of so-so quality, and an attempt at documenting the music isn't necessarily the best listening music.
5.0 out of 5 stars Unique, authentic, relaxing without being corny 14 Dec. 2013
By Caitlin - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I learned about this style of music from a documentary about Richard Feynman. (For the uninitiated, a physicist who loved to play the bongoes). Feynman had become fascinated with this region and its inhabitants, who practice a unique form of singing with the throat that sounds like both humming and whistling--similar to the sound of a flute. Intriguing but also very pleasant for studying or relaxing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the best 21 July 2007
By Massimo Maddaloni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD presents different styles of Xoomei, or throat singing, from an ethnomusicologist's perspective. It features some of the most incredible sounds on this Planet. It has been recorded in situ, so don't expect studio quality on each and every track. To my taste it's a great listening. Nonetheless, whoever is looking for "easy"-listening music featuring Xoomei, might find it a little dry, and may want to look for some records by Huun Huur Tu, Egschiglen or the like.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, haunting music. 14 April 2014
By P. Mulloy - Published on Amazon.com

I had heard an interview of the Physicist Richard Feynman about his efforts to go to Tuva, saw this CD and had to have it. This is one of the best, listenable and entertaining collections of Mongolian throat singing that you will find.
