The Yat-Kha “Yenisei Punk” (Full Album) is being posted here for NO COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.
Yat-Kha, a band from Tuva, led by vocalist/guitarist Albert Kuvezin is a mixture of Tuvan traditional music and rock, featuring Kuvezin’s throat singing style, the kanzat kargyraa. The name “Yat-Kha,” means a type of small, central asian zither similar to the Mongolian yatga and the Chinese guzheng, which Kuvezin plays in addition to the guitar.
Tuva is a remote, biodiverse Russian republic in southern Siberia, populated by traditionally nomadic, yurt-dwelling tribes. The Uvs Nuur Basin, shared with Mongolia, encompasses a bird-rich saline lake amid grassland steppes, cold deserts and high mountains home to endangered animals. The massive Yenisei River and its many tributaries traverse Tuva and its Soviet-influenced capital, Kyzyl.
