Favorite Song(s) of the Day: Tunes of Tengri

Huun Hur Tu-Tuvan Internationale

If the Exuma song was dripping with magic, this Altai shaman song by Huun Hur Tu is drenched with it.

I’ve always had a fondness for throat singing but my curiosity never took me beyond the popular albums from Mongolia. In between disco, I’ve been listening to music from Central Asia songs made by Uyghurs, music from Xianjiang and Altai and few other Asian-Turkish influenced genres from the region. There is so much more to listen to but for now, I will leave you with these clips.

Huun Huur Tu-Dangyna

Nomads sharing music? I can hear lots of Romani style in this song.

Tengri is revered as the creator of the universe and the spirit the sky in many parts of Central Asia.
