Album The Silk Road: A Musical Caravan

This virtuoso composition for the jaw harp (Jew’s harp) combines several different performance techniques. At the end, Edil Huseinov throws in a breath of khai - the ultra-low guttural style of throat-singing that has been forgotten in Kazakhstan but is still practiced by Kazakhs in Mongolia and Altai peoples north of Kazakhstan.
