There is an astonishing unity of nature, people and music in Tuva

There is an astonishing unity of nature, people and music in TuvaIn the course of the past 10 years, Tuvan folkloristics, in the context of ethnography, has changed in a significant way. More exactly, it has changed under the influence of interest of Western culture in our unique folk culture. I have not thought before that the Japanese, Americans and Germans would show any interest in it or in our language.
Now, representatives of these nations study Tuvan language at the TGU base with great interest. This is evidence that they, first of all, are searching for the secrets of a method of learning khoomei. Khoomei and stone carving attract great interest of many people in various corners of the planet.

In the Republic of Tuva, in Russia, Johnson visited a center where shamans counsel suffering souls. “People unburden their hearts and minds of things they feel are sabotaging their lives,” she says
