Leading and Being Guided

Ask any Tuvan today, what the mysterious expression “Huun-Huurtu” means, and he’ll answer “sun propeller” or “sun”. But 15 years ago, when the ethno-group of this name was being born, such a concept was not known in Tuva at all. Not in normal, vernacular language. The musicians themselves explain it this way: Huun-Huurtu is a natural effect that appears when the sun is shining through trees or clouds. Huun-Huurtu is “prosvet”. (Transl. note: can be translated as enlightenment, culture, education, or simply light shining through. HJ.) And that is very symbolic.
