Default US - Russia - Kyrgystan- US

Guys -

A week from now, if everything goes as planned, I will be on my way (first
time in 18 years) back to the old country. In-between geological maps and
visits to high-elevation gold mines I hope to have a taste of what looks
like a unprecedented tea frenzy between Baltics and Urals.
Reports have it that puers creations go for much $$$ per cup at Moscow tea
clubs with teamasters from China and Japan doing the art. I am skeptical,
but we'll see. Will write in detail when I come back.

Sasha.

Nope. Born in Siberia, raised in Leningrad (SPB now).
I have never heard of diphonic singing in Kyrgyz. Tuva is a different story.

I love the music of Kyrgyz myself, but haven't got a vocabulary to describe
it. That Tuva stuff is the famous double noted throat thing also found in
Tibet, right? Sasha, have you ever tried that style of singing? Be careful
though: It could make your voice kind of husky.

Yes, the Tuva singers can modulate a sharp melody while they hold a
continue bass line...

Sorry, Sasha, for having confused Tuva and Kyrgystan...

You should hear my rendition of "Nessun Dorma" ("A l'aba vincero" - the
final from Turandot) in vodka-induced thri-phonic voice. Beats the puerh out
of Pavarotti.

Did anybody ever see "Genghis Blues"
http://www.horschamp.qc.ca/new_offsc...ghisblues.html
and many more similar hits using Google.
It made the rounds of Premium Movies a couple of years ago.
Essentially a black blind blues singer who taught himself Tuva throat
singing when he first heard it on Moscow Radio using shortwave.
