Digging around on YouTube recently, I found several videos of amazing Tuvan avant-throat singer Sainkho Namtchylak. Here are two beautiful songs she performed on Russian TV, and I have no clue when this was recorded, who the other musicians are, and what kind of TV show this was. Maybe one of our readers knows?
The second song follows after the jump.
If this is too tame for you, or if you just want to see how Sainkho looks like without a wig, check out this excerpt (YouTube link) of a documentary called Sainkho - A Voice On The Edge - A Journey of Extremes. Or even better, check out all the Sainkho on YouTube and go out and buy her albums. There are not too many other avant-throat singers with a seven-octave range out there.
