It's available since end of 2007, so you can order it on hosoo.de.
This is a very nice album which is presented in a cardboard cd box.
It really fits their whole new 'look' with their new outfits. In my opinion it looks a bit more professional
compared to their first album, Gesang des Himmels, although it seems more simplistic. Which I like.
When you open the box there is a Mongolian poem written with the ensemble posing next to it in front of
the Altai mountains. It really sets a tone before listening to the actual CD.
This album obviously is about the homeland of the ensemble.
Although not as impressive as Gesang des Himmels, it's a lot more subtle and beautiful.
Where Gesang des Himmels really focused on rhitmic melodies with a lot of throat singing,
Memories of my Homeland focuses more the diversity of the whole ensemble.
Favorites on the CD are Sankiyu Ayalguu with a melody on Bishgüür, which you don't
hear a lot in Mongolian music anymore, unfortunately. Followed by Mongol Nutag, which
more or less sounds like a refined improvisation in different singing styles.
And finally Khoyor Nutgiin Erkh, which really has the focus on Hosoo his voice combined with
fine morin khuur and guest musician Omid Bahadori on acoustic guitar.
