Mongolian Throat Singing: Wonderful Foreign Sounds On Top Of A Mountain

If you grew up in the Western world without a lot of exposure to Asian culture, you might never have heard something like this in your entire life: Mongolian throat singing – a particular variant of overtone singing practiced by people in Mongolia, Inner Mongolia, Tuva and Siberia.

This is a demonstration of the art in a beautiful scenery on top of a mountain. Truly a wonderful cultural experience for everyone.

See the lyrics and the translation below, in case you want to sing along. 😉
