Not like everybody else. Part III

Not like everybody else. Part III-  Sainkho, if somebody addresses you as Lyudmila, will you respond?

-  Certainly not. I don't react to that name anymore. And the audience won't react either. If somebody hangs up a poster: Lyudmila Namtchylak, nobody will understand anything.

-  Why did you pick precisely this name as your stage pseudonym?

-   A woman of that name used to live in Kyzyl - Sainkho Darzhayevna Dorzhu. She was a dancer, and later, after she retired, she worked in the Union of Theatre artists.  Charming, kind, woman. I liked both her and the combination of the sounds of her rare name.

And when it became necessary to have a mysterious, exotic-sounding name which would reflect what I was doing on the stage, that is what I chose.  The process of getting used to my new name began in 1986: in Krasnodar,  they  gave me the certificate already  as Sainkho.

Not like everybody else. Part II

Not like everybody else. Part II-  Sainkho, what is your main character trait?

-  Curiosity.

-  And being non-standard?

-  Being non-standard is more of a result.

In the West, probably, it is less conspicuous, because people are more tolerant.  To behave extravagantly or to look different from the others is not such a very noticeable thing. Artists and singers are perceived as people of a different world, and society accepts their out of the ordinary characteristics calmly.

-  Did it take a great inner effort to shave your head?

-  No. I was 43 at the time. My management was in Milan, and Milan is the Italian Mecca of fashion.  And they would design new clothing for me for every new album. And for one of the albums, they found a long cashmere dress, form-fitting, with bare shoulders. And something like a shawl that I could wrap myself in.

The result was a kind of a monk-like image, so I suggested to shave my head. And they shaved my head. As a matter of fact, it suits me very much. It is very laconic, ascetic, at that time nobody else was doing it.

So that is how I performed with the ensemble: bald head, tight dress, a sort of - not quite- shawl - something delicately lilac with a purplish tinge. It was very beautiful.

Not like everybody else. Part 1

Not like everybody else.  Part 1She had two names. Only one remained - a mysterious one.

She herself is a mystery.

Avant-garde.  Intriguing. Non-standard. Not subject to aging.

Improviser and experimenter, constantly surprising others and able to surprise herself.

Sainkho Namtchylak, who sings in voices of winds and hurricanes, stars and birds. She makes drawings with tea and coffee. She writes poems without punctuation and without rhyme - by a stream of consciousness.

From Novosibirsk to the "Scythian gold" in 2 hours and 20 minutes

From Novosibirsk to the "Scythian gold" in 2 hours and 20 minutesThe first passengers from Novosibirsk have used the Swiss air-taxi and came to Tuva on Friday. The goal of the tourists from Novosibirsk was to see the "Scythian gold".

"I have read so much about the unique collection of jewelry from the royal kurgans of Scythian era, which are kept at the Tuvan museum - said Andrei K. - I have been dreaming about seeing it with my own eyes not just from curiosity, but also from practical interest. I am involved in production of jewelry, and I try to take note of everything. Not just the new stuff, but works of  old master-craftsmen as well. Sometimes they bring a new impetus of creativity."

The Novosibirsk businessman spent the weekend in Tuva and returned home today. Beside the museum, he also visited  Kundustug arzhaan and Cheder lake. He took a photo at the Center of Asia obelisk.

Tuvan reindeer females at Abakan Zoo have young

Earlier this year, four  Todzha reindeer went to take up permanent residence at the Abakan Zoo. "Tuvinskaya Pravda" wrote about it at the time.

The administration of the zoo bought the reindeer of Tuvan-Tofalar breed in the remote Chazylar settlement of Todzha district, in a private reindeer farm of Svetlana Demkina. And then we heard the good news.  The  "vazhenkas" (reindeer does) had offspring.

Last week, the former owner of the reindeer, Svetlana Demkina made a special trip to the zoo to visit with her pets and to meet their young. The reindeer from Todzha are practically domestic, and they are very attached to their owners. It is not surprising that when Svetlana Demkina approached the enclosure, the reindeer recognized her.

Tuva. People of Action: Aldar Konstantinovich TamdynYear of birth of my enterprise.

We registered on 20 April 2009.

Why I decided to become the master of my own affairs.

My father worked at the art school in Chadan, my mother was a security guard there. As a child, I used to go to work with her, and , playing the musical instruments, I felt like a king. When I eventually went to study at the Kyzyl art school, there was not enough instruments, and I wanted my own instrument so very much.
