We’ll be featuring Festival audio on our SoundCloud page! You can find music, soundscapes, field interviews, and quick soundbites all gathered at the 2014 Smithsonian Folklife Festival.
This one comes from the Ih Tsetsn Ensemble, an Inner Mongolian group now based in Beijing. They are known for performing khoomei throat-singing, as well as more contemporary songs, like “The Handsome Horse.”
This is by far one of my favorite part of the Folklife Festival. These guys were a DREAM. They are a Mongolian throat singing band based in Beijing, called Ih Tsetsn. I hope hope HOPE I can find them again one day. This will be your new “my day just got better” song…
Also, you should check all the other SoundClounds we’re putting together for your listening enjoyment on the Folklife SoundCloud page.
