Angelite & Huun-Huur-Tu – Fly, Fly My Sadness (1996)
Tuvan Throat Singing is the most obscure genre I’ve ever came across. From some forgotten Balkan state come choir Huun-Huur-Tu and Bulgarian folkers Angelite whose culture-clash between the former’s melancholic drones and the latter’s experimental folk art intertwine and provide an interesting and at first challenging listening experience but soon becomes quite beautiful after repeated listens. The ideal behind this rare find is to capture emotion through complex vocal drones yet simultaneously layer this with overtones of ringing choral harmonies to evoke solemnity and ethereality as you lose yourself in these magical meandering vocal compositions. This album is highly recommended for the adventurous listener or someone wanting to hear something that they’ve most probably never heard the likes of before.
