THEODORE LEVIN & VALENTINA SUZUKEI: WHERE RIVERS & MOUNTAINS SING/ SOUND MUSIC and NOMADISM IN TUVA AND BEYONG, NEW EDITION, English language, 281 pages

SUZUKEI VALENTINA & TED LEVIN

Theodore Levin takes readers on a journey through the rich sonic world of inner Asia, where the elemental energies of wind, water, and echo; the ubiquitous presence of birds and animals; and the legendary feats of heroes have inspired a remarkable art and technology of sound-making among nomadic pastoralists. As performers from Tuva and other parts of inner Asia have responded to the growing worldwide popularity of their music, Levin follows them to the West, detailing their efforts to nourish global connections while preserving the power and poignancy of their music traditions.
