I have always loved throat singing! I find it mesmerizing and beautiful! When cultural heritage is celebrated we all get to share in the beauty others bring to the world.

Tradition and culture are so amazing and fascinating. Like others have stated it sucks previous and some current generations try to kill it, but this revival is beautiful. Have been trying myself and this ain't easy!!
