ThongFoto- Kalmyk “Throat Singers”

Ajoutée le 28 juin 2013

A fascinating performance from the Kalmyk singers of the Republic of Kalmykia. Kalmykia is officially Buddhist and home to the western group of Mongolic peoples. Like Tuvans throat singers, Kalmyk musicians also perform throat singing on traditional stringed instruments. Don’t miss these spectacular performances on the Smithsonian Mall from June 26- July 7.
