I received a new Chirgilchin CD tonight. It is called "Will Teach". I want to announce this one before even listening through the whole thing and writing a review because this is neat. The CD features solo examples of different styles of throatsinging by the different members of Chirgilchin. It also has some solo instrument performances plus two songs by students from the camp (Seth Augustus and Soriah).
Looks a nice record to have. I need some advice please. 1. who is Sasha 2. I live segregated from modern world and delivery cost for one CD on amazon was 20 USD. So anyone suggest me your top ten "Khoomei" records and maybe I take one delivery instead of ten. Thanks!

-The Orphan's Lament by Huun Huur Tu was my first Tuvan CD and still one of my favorites, certainly my top HHT pick.
-Yat-Kha Tuva.Rock and Aldyn Dashka
-Sabjilar's Syr Chome album
-Chirgilchin's Collectible album
Those last two are Pure Nature Music CDs, which unfortunately aren't available on Amazon. The best way to get PNM CDs is to email Sasha (the address is on the website). Sasha was a founding member of Huun Huur Tu, as was Albert Kuvezin from Yat-Kha.
