Tech Throats from the Steppes (Repost)

Albert Kuvezin, at the fore of Tuva's music scene and founding member of group Huun-Huur-Tu, started this band in 1991. Yat-Kha is named for the string instrument that it features. The band combines khoomii tuvan ultra-bass, polytonal throat-singing, high-tech, and homemade instruments in crafting their neo-traditional sound. Here's their debut album from early nineties.
