Fun With Videos: Mongolian Throat Singing

All right, all right–I’m having fun posting videos, now that I’ve figured out how to do it. Eventually the novelty will wear off.

Meanwhile, get a load of this–Mongolian throat singing. Is this cool, or what?

For those of you who’ve been reading my Bell Mountain books, this is what the Ghols sound like when they sing. Just close your eyes and imagine you’re King Ryons, riding with his loyal Ghols around him.

  1. I’m afraid this is a little over the top for me, but I think some of the neighbor kids around here are practicing to perfect this art. That’s why I keep a box of earplugs handy. I don’t know… call me a spoil sport, stick in the mud, whatever, but I can’t help it.

  2. It’s very unique! I can’t say it’s something I’d listen to on a regular basis, but it’s really … mysterious and ancient sounding, and actually does seem based on the actual landscape somehow; almost as if it’s coming from the earth itself, if that’s not too corny 🙂

    1. I’d walk a mile out of my way to avoid hearing Beyonce or Lady Gaga or any rap at all. I might even do calisthenics to get out of listening to any of that stuff.

      But Mongolian throat-singing–well, if that doesn’t satisfy your taste for the exotic, what will?

  3. Love the Ghol’s imprecatory hymn about drinking fermented mare’s milk out if the Thunder King’s skull!
