4.0 out of 5 stars Stiring and Interesting October 15, 2001
It's funny how good music sometimes arrives by chance. I happened to hear Yat-Kha perform on NPR's Connection, so I decided to attend their "Storm over Asia" show in Cambridge. Two hours later, I walked out completely captured by the music of A. Khuvesin and company. Soon enough, I had purchased this album and Yenisey Punk, and now I would call myself a fan. Here's the thing: I would caution against pigeonholing Yat-Kha! It's not just primordial growling - we're not anthropologists - and it's not merely a commercialised, palatable "exotic" album - it would not last long. This music is varied, stiring, often playfull and well crafted. You only have to listen to "Chorumal Bodum" and "Takh-Pakh" to hear the band both at its most soulful and whimsical. I also was intrigued by the unusual sounds of "Oi Moroz", a bit of Russian folklore embraced by the Tuvan band. The vocal performances are trully extraordinary (watch your *sub-woofer* cut in to pick up the deep tones of Khuveisin!). I recommend Aldyn Dashka for music that is both authentic and original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stirring, interesting, unusual, and beautiful.... July 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
What is the world coming to? Throat singers from Tuva forming a rock band and daring to combine two wildly disparate styles. Does it work? Yes... The reviewer below describes this much better than I can. Albert Kuvezin sounds like a force of nature; one with the thunderstorm. This guy sings notes that make Alexander Kipnis sound like a high tenor. Highly recommended!
