Overtone chanting by Gyudmed Tantric Monastic Universitys monks

Rituals and ceremonies, performed by Tibetan monks from Gyudmed monastery, invariably excite enormous interest of Russian public. Combining the elements of ancient art and Buddhism and giving the opportunity to touch the culture of Tibet, their overtone chanting fascinates really. Gyudmed monasterys lamas are considered to be the best in what they do in Tibetan society: Dalai-lama invites them to make the most important ceremonies.
Without any exaggeration one can call Tibetan monks overtone chanting the visiting card of Tibet. In any film, in any musical composition about the Legendary Roof of the World, one can hear their low voices of a startling depth and power, bringing with them the energy of utterly other, unknown, but magnetic world.

Yoryal. Folk music orchestra (Kalmykia)

Yoryal. Folk music orchestra (Kalmykia)

Amazing melodies of the endless kalmykian and Mongolian prairies, the instruments with the strange voices and fairy-tale names: tovshur, huchir, yatkha, shanz, jinginur These instruments sounded in the ancient times, when the great heroes-giants from kalmykian epos Jangr lived, fighting the enemies and protecting a precious Buddhist teaching about love and compassion. These instruments sang their doleful songs in the 40-ties, when the Buddhist temples built by the nomads were destroyed, when kalmykian lamas, who returned from many years of studies in Tibet were shot, and common people were sent to the exile to Siberia.
