Oidupaa Vladimir Oiun- Divine Music From a Jail




After watching Genghis Blues, I thought that I had heard all the Tuvan throat-singing that I'd ever need to hear. I was wrong- OV Ouin is something else entirely-- mournful, heartsick folk ballads, underscored by a wonderfully ethereal accordian (or concertina?), rather than the fast-plucked string staccatos of Tuvan song that I'd become accustomed to expect. One of my favorite albums ever. Just you listen here:


*Many thanks to Mr. Matthew Wells for supplying me with this haunting little album a few years back.

Hey I just heard this on the Ghost Capital mixtape for Aquarium Drunkard. I was totally blown away. I'm late to the train on this one, but could you repost this or make the link for download live again?

Fantastic. You and Moos at Globalgroove have to be two of my favorite people in the world, along with Sindre, the developer of Subsonic :) Thank you for everything.

I'm in from the mixtape as well and at first I couldn't relate to what I perceived as grunting. Now I really like what I perceive as grunting!
