The Who? No. The Hu.

If you like throat singing, primal feelings, images of plains and have dreams of riding horseback and pillaging, looting and in general just being a wild one...This might be for you.

I love the way they mix traditional instruments with hard rhythms and that bad-ass throat singing (I still want to know how that works.)

Let me know what you think...

Frikkin Awesome. The voice, the main guy with the gravel in his throat, wow. Reminds me of old blues singer Tom Waits who also used that growl in his stuff. And the music itself, strong beat reminding me of Steppinwolf and ZZ Top.

I never heard these guys before but that was a gas. I love this ''tribal'' kind of music. The constant drone running throughout with that heart pounding beat. Trance stuff that. Stuff to get lost in.

Thanks so much. Now back to the second video.

Glad you enjoyed it...Something so primal about the throat singing and the rhythms.

Not my cup of tea, but interesting none the less.

A nice blend, evocative and good musicianship.

Now they need a couple of hits.

Primal, that's the word I was looking for. And primal lyrics as well, calling for the ancient power to come forth. Good stuff.

Thanks, got it though. I first found throat singing back when. There was this jazz singer, Leon Thomas I think, used to sing with Pharoh Sanders and he did some of this.

Here is another style of throat singing from Scandinavia. This guy bases much of his music on the tonal scale of the Alpine Alphorn. To the throat singing he adds Scandinavian yodeling. When he does the throat singing, he moves his hands around the front of his mouth to modulate the tones emitted. Kind of like when a blues harmonica player cups the harp with his hands for modulation. Quite fascinating.

Once we get past the culture of POP that is foist upon us there is a plethora of far out experimental musics going on. All the artists that will NEVER make big money at it. Seems to me that once an artist becomes famous enough to sell out large audiences, the demand to do what they have already done over and over is so great that most pop artists just quit creating new things.

The cross cultural experimenting that is all around us now never makes it to the play lists and people never get to see or hear the incredible stuff that is around.



Most people are turned off by this stuff and certainly I cannot handle it as a steady diet. But every couple of years or so I like to pull it out to remind myself what a truly diverse and creative world we live in.

That was awesome! I always liked the throat singing. Years back I heard somebody mixing throat singing with Iron Man.

Thanks, checking them out now. I love the way that folk sounds and metal seem to mix well in this genre.
