Mongolian Throat Singing

sunny 20 °C

This one is for David and Georgina, and Bob, who tried very hard, but was no good at Throat singing!!!!

Mongolia is famous for a lot of things, in particular its throat singing, in fact the region of Tuva (Russia) is where the most of it started. They use a two string instrument which is called a morin khuur, and some kind of traditional harp, and the star of the show is able to use his throat to produce some more than one tone simultaneously.

While i was in Karakoram, Mongolias ancient capital, i got the chance to see it, after having a go at it in Ronda, Spain with David, Georgina, and Bob!!!

This song was about a Camel.......

THis song is about a horse...

me and the man...
