Chirgilchin is a phenomenal group of Tuvan musicians that play traditional Tuvan folk music, which means a whole lot of throatsinging. I recently had the chance to see them play in a church in Montclair, New Jersey, and they were simply amazing. It was mind-boggling that the sounds I heard that night were coming out of human beings without the aid of effects.
