Tserendavaa and Tsogtgerel

A couple of years ago I was lucky to catch their performance in Paris, at the time Tsogtgerel was 16 years old and already a very good performer and I had no idea that his father, Tserendavaa, was a well-known khoomii singer. A very nice person too.

Hosoo & Transmongolia, khoomii and traditional music

When I first heard Hosoo's music from his Altai album, I must say I wasn't a fan, it was way too New Agey for me. But from the few songs that I heard from his website, performed with his group, Transmongolia, it sounds pretty good, plus his khoomii skills are very impressive. Click here to listen to a very cool khoomii and human beatbox song.

Norovbanzad Namjil, long song

I couldn't forget of course about Norovbanzad (1931-2003), one of the greatest voices of long song.
