Alimaa, khoomii

I am always complaining that I can't find any videos of female khoomii singers, but found one here:

The first time I saw it, for some reason, I'd thought it was a recording of a male singer with some woman's video. It turned out, it was her the one who was singing. Her khoomii isn't perfect at times, but she's making an effort. I was impressed by her kharkhiraa. There's another one here

You can find these clips on the DVD 'Nomadic Melodies'. Not very professional made DVD, but still very nice. I do not like the fact the sound is from studio and images are shot seperate. Makes bit fake synchronisation.

It is available here:

To download embedded movies from website: You need Firefox and a so called 'embedded downoader'. This allows you to download sound or movies which are hidden inside pages.

Thanks a lot! I am pretty clumsy with computers and internet stuff, but I will try this embedded downloader thingie. :-)

It's a pity they didnt make a better quality dvd
