..and now for something completely different..
If I say; “throat-singing from Tuva”, does that ring any bell to you ?
If it doesn’t, it is time to get aquainted. When I saw “Gengis Blues”
again, it hit me like it did the first time and I decided to give it a go.
I could be mistaking but if I’m correct, this cd by the wonderful Shu-De
is already out of print. Don’t get confused now, Gengis Blues is a film
about the blind American bluessinger Paul Pena who’s one of the first
western artists to practise this type of singing. The movie follows him to
Tuva and gives us a marvelous inside look in it’s quite unknown culture.
The cd ‘Shu-De – Voices from the distant steppe’ on Peter Gabriels ‘Real
World’ label is from 1994 and combines wonderful with Paul Pena’s story.
To spoil you a bit more I added some funvideo’s
