El GarBage (M@tt He1ges0n), Friday, 19 February 2010 22:35 (eleven years ago) link

Namgar, the singer from the family line of white shamans. In the heart of Siberia, under bottomless blue sky, there the songs sung by Namgar were born.
She is a daughter of the steppe, born to a cattle herder whose line included the darkhasha craftsmen and white shamans.
She masters the mysteries of the great wide open, voices of spirits of mountains and forests. Love to the melodies sung by her granny and her father, the wish to maintain the tradition that is becoming extinct, brought her on festival stages around the world.
She sings long songs and yokhor dance tunes, uliger legends of mighty champions, precise arrows, and swift horses, just as they used to sing ages ago, with music arranged so that the jewels of her singing were accessible on world music stage.
Namgar has been the cult Buryat singer for people in Buryatia and Mongolia, and beyond in East Siberia.

call all destroyer, Friday, 19 February 2010 23:20 (eleven years ago) link

Matt, I saw them at globalfest this year and was floored; i was told they were traditional mongolian music and freaked out when they sounded like Tull and Sabbath. The album is a good time and highly recommended.
http://www.lala.com/#album/2810527642498199300/Namgar/Nomad
Try Tunka.
BTW, if you haven't used it before: you gotta register, but everything on Lala is free for the first listen... and, if you're crafty about hitting the fast-forward button, for multiple listens.

forks explain crafty w fast foward button on lala?

call all destroyer, Sunday, 21 February 2010 20:29 (eleven years ago) link

fred, imo, is mostly for tweens and the occasional slightly bizarre strain of hipster that wants to be "tween-hip"

"Crafty with ffwd on lala" means that you hit forward or rewind to the next track on the album JUST BEFORE the song ends. You see, Lala only registers you as having heard a song when it finishes and once you've finished a song it will only play a 30 second sample from that point on. If you're fast on your feet, you can relisten to a track dozens of times. I also recommend listening to singles as single eps independent of the album. Always hit stop when you're done listening!

Apparently, you can subscribe to a feed of everything uploaded as "Various Artists" on Youtube (via Youtube Music, I think): youtube.com/channel/UCAkMM77O0SVmhJodrp0NgNg/videos

Which is likely not a great discovery mechanism, but it did lead me to this, which seems only to exist on Youtube Music.
