Tuvan shaman in Murmansk

Tuvan shaman in MurmanskAs part of  the "Yagel-fest" festival, a real Tuvan shaman Nikolai Oorzhak came to Murmansk, together with his ensemble "Un-Khun". There were not many of those wishing to hear his healing chants, but those who did come had no regrets about wasted time.

-  I used to be a herder at first, then I wrote slogans - one had to support the party personally, - Nikolai starts the story about his gift.

During Soviet times, really, one could not even think about this type of healing, and Nikolai had not been aware of having any such abilities. He worked at the National Theatre in Tuva, where he often met with masters of throat-singing - khoomei. The unique aspect of this art is that the performes produces two notes simultaneously, that is, he sings in two voices. There are many types of khoomei.
