11- Ozum (Sprouts): Young Voices of Ancient Tuva
Window to Europe CD sum 90 008
Jodenbreestraat 24, 1011 NK, Amsterdam, Netherlands

A Dutch-Russian release from Otkun Dostai, Oolak Ondar,
and Stanislav Iril, three young Tuvan musicians who
have built on the traditional style. A strong album
that I really like. Oolak Ondar (b. 1973) was the
winner at the throat singing symposium (1991, Kyzyl) in
sygyt style. Stanislav Iril was also a symposium
winner (best kargyraa, 1995). See
http://www.cbc.umn.edu/~sklar/kargchamp.mov Khoomei,
khomus, acoustic guitar, and shaman drum.
13 tracks, 42'34.

12- Mongolian Songs
King Record Co CD KICC 5133
2-12-13 Otowa Bunkyo-ku Tokyo 112 Japan

Part of King's World Music Library, this is a Japanese
import with almost no English in the package. 7
performers, 19 songs, 54'52. The men's khoomei is very
good, the women's takes some getting used to.

13- Mongolian Epic Song (Zhangar)
King Record Co CD KICC 5136
2-12-13 Otowa Bunkyo-ku Tokyo 112 Japan

Male vocal with instrumental accompaniment. Short and
long songs.

14- Mongolian Morin Khuur Ci Bulag
King Record Co CD KICC 5135

Sentimental horse-head fiddle solos.

15- Morin Khuur Ci Bulag
JVC World Sounds, VICG-5212

More Sentimental horse-head fiddle solos.

16- Mongolie Ensemble Mandukhai
Playa Sound, PS 65115

Large variety with some khoomei.

17- Mongolie Chants Kazakh et tradition epique de l'Ouest
Ocora - Radio France, C 580051

25 songs, with tobsuur accompaniment, recorded in
Mongolia in 1984 and 1990. Twenty songs of Kazakh
music, some of it actually danceable! Minimal khoomei,
although the voices do make good use of changing
timbres. The final five songs are labelled ``epic
tradition of the West'' and the lyrics are fragments of
lengthy epic songs.

18- Huun-Huur-Tu: Sixty Horses In My Herd - Old Songs and Tunes
of Tuva
Shanachie Records CD SH 64050 CD/MC
37 E. Clinton St., Newton NJ 40017

Master khoomigch Kaigal-ool Khovalyg and his new group,
which has toured all over the US. 12 tracks of all
natures of top-notch khoomei, other singing, igil
(Tuvan viol) playing. Its being studio-produced, which
although lending a slight inauthenticity, makes for an
eminently listenable album. Decent liner notes and
text. [BSG]
