Soyolmaa

video
This is refreshing.... a video featuring a khuuchir. The khuuchir is played by Soyolmaa and the music is by Jantsannorov (I may be mistaken, because the names flash in a fraction of a second at the end and I kinda had to guess)

Unique! And mezmerizing!
Nice discovery. Do you know if this is common? I think I have heard a lot of Mongolian vocal/instrument duets, but never throat singing with khuuchir!

Then again, Khuuchir is most of the time hidden in big ensembles...At least I have not heard much solo work... unfortunately. Beautiful!

This is the first video that I find that features this instrument. I don't think it's very common to see a khuuchir with khoomii, too bad , because it sounds great.
Here's a short video of a khuuchir solo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIcPFg86PYE
