hey vector_0, no worries man...I usually never read the comments either.
the genghis blues movie is great even for people that are not a tuva music fan, it's still just such a great story. a blind blues musician hearing throat singing on a shortwave and then eventually travelling to tuva and winning in competition.
the whole thing is just legend material. it don't get no better than this...watch it and weep.

I had heard of this, but wasn't too fond of it. on initial listen it sounded promising but didn't meet my expectation or taste. this got quite an interesting review on emusic, i think our psychill/world influenced artists around here could do much better of course!
anyone notice daniel ringstrom (CBL,sync24) subtle and oh so sweet use of overtone singing in his work?
authentic world fusion is delicate and hard to do it right. listen to this version of "ekki attar" by vladiswar nadishana...very nice!! you'll hear the difference...(broadband listen of course)
...also V. Nadishana is a great world/folk musician with an electronic lovers sensiblity if you haven't discovered him yet. he has a knack for the right balance of world + modern tech. and he can play almost any instrument in existence! I've been a fan since his mp3.com days... he has quite a few albums out now. "The sparrow is sorry for the peacock for the burden of its tail" -Rabindranath Tagore
