AltaiKai - are masterly throat singers skillful in
any style and variety of kai and traditional mu-
sical instruments. Mellow deep sounds of karky-
ra, bewitching khoomei and melodious sygyt-sy-
bysky, vividly imitated sounds of nature - cha-
mimg singing of birds, gentle murmur of a brook,
ferocious roaring of predators; gentle woman
singing and woman throat singing, tunes of kho-
mus, topshur and accordion make the music
of AltaiKai.
