Traditional classical music from Tuva and Sri Lanka.

The music is a mixture of World fusion and Folk melodies from the South Siberian republic of Tuva, and is based on traditional Tuvan songs and songs composed by Mongolian Boris Salchak, and Swiss Christy Doran, recorded at London’s Livingstone Studio. Much of the music is improvised, played on the electric guitar, traditional Tuvan instruments and percussion effects of the Brazilian Airto Moreira.
