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.

The tallest statue of the Buddha in Russia will stand in TuvaThe builders are planning to finish the tallest statue of the Buddha in Russia, which will stand in Kyzyl, in 2012.
Two years ago, Buddhist lamas proposed the idea to erect the tallest gilded statue of Buddha Shakyamuni in Russia near Kyzyl. The statue is to be 15 meters tall. The monument, located on Mt. Dogee, will consist of a 6-meter throne with the meditating Buddha seated on it in lotus pose. At first, the statue was supposed to be 40 meters tall. However, on the advice of the planners, the builders decided to decrease it to 15 meters to be better able to withstand seismic events. Even this will still make it the tallest in Russia.
