Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

I started doing what I call Sing, Sing a Song Saturday.  I'm going to post one song on Saturdays that the boys or I like. 

The song may be part of a movie, a kid's video or just a song we like. I'll try and include why we like it and/or the history of the song/singer.

This next band is the most unique I've heard in a long time! Have you ever heard Mongolian music? I don't think I have. It's very different from ours! I can some people hating it because it is so different. The band I'm featuring today is called Khusugtun. They play a variety of instruments. One thing that makes them along with other cultures so different, is the way they handle their voices. They have one person within their band that does what is called deep throat singing. Alone deep throat singing is disturbing to me. Mixed with singing and other instruments, I find it to be interesting. One person that teaches this method of singing said the best way to practice is to learn to bark like a dog. Kind of odd, but you used the back of your throat to deep throat sing. You will have to be the judge if this kind of music is fascinating or disturbing to you.

They have great culture heritage and valuable folk sound in their band. 

This song is called Altergana.

Like Khusugtun on Facebook here.

Hmmmmm I have heard of deep throat, not in singing though. The one guy in the last song sure has a deep, deep voice!!

That was definitely interesting. I don't think I could listen to this over and over again, but it was a unique sound!

My father has an odd taste in music and listens to these guys, so I have heard them before. It's definitely different...
