transilvaniasmile Who knew jazzy psych rock would mix so well with traditional Tuvan overtone singing and instruments? This EP is a ton of fun and is worth the sub-20 minutes of time it will take - and if you want more, you'll be happy to know their debut album "Agitator" is fantastic as well! Favorite track: Kokey Noyan.

Carsten Pieper Hartyga label themselves as "second wave of Tuva rock" and here they team up with one pivotal protagonist of the first wave, Albert Kuvezin of Yat-Kha (and Huun-Huur-Tu) fame.

Track Name: Megechi Kham
Үе хевин солуп кетсе-даа,
Үүлгедии эрги-ле хевээр.
Ирик хөмнүг эрги дүңгүрлер
Индирлерде ам-даа дагжап тур.


Мези дылдыг, авыястыг
Мегечи хам, дүңгүрүң ырат!

Күчүлелдиң ачызы-биле
Хүндүткелди чаалап алдың,
Хүрүм-баъктың үндезини дээш
Хүрээлерни өртеттириптиң


Четкерлериң эдертип алгаш
Чежеге дээр үптеп, мөлчүүр сен?!
Эрлик-Ловуң келдирти берзе
Элзип алган байлааң канчаар сен?!


Каптагайны чаяап, бүдүрген
Хайырааты Бурган көрүп ор
Сүрлүг шындан канчап кортпас сен?
Сүнезиниң ушкарыпкаш, чор!
