Huun Huur Tu – “Exile’s Song” (1994)

I don’t know enough about traditional Tuvan throat-singing and instrumental music to tell you if what Huun Huur Tu do is “traditional”.  Some is obviously not; this high-and-lonely sounding lament might be; some of the instrumentation and double-note-singing surely is.  I do know it’s beautiful, beguiling, and in this meditative, wind-like droning form, it’s emotionally captivating.  [Huun Huur Tu can be heard dueting with Luc Ferrari and The For Carnation here in a mix at Musicophilia.]
