Tserendavaa’s CD Chandman’ Song (TS001)

Traditional Mongolian melodies sung in Khöömii (Overtone Singing)

 

Chandman’ Song is the first CD dedicated to Tserendavaa’s Khöömii singing. You can hear Tserendavaa sing traditional Mongolian melodies in his six styles of Khöömii, including his unique Hosmoljin Khöömii, which is a combination of singing words and overtones at the same time! He accompanies himself on the Morin Khuur (Horse head fiddle), the Tobshuur (2 string west Mongolian fretless lute) and metal & bamboo mouth harps. The CD ends with a unique demonstration and lecture in which Tserendavaa explains and demonstrates about khöömii practices and his six styles of khöömii : Uruulyn (Labial) Khöömii, Tagnain (Palatal) Khöömii, Khamryn (Nasal) Khöömii, Bagalzuuryn (Throat) Khöömii, Tseejin khöndiin (Chest cavity) Khöömii and his unique Hosmoljin (Combination of singing words and overtones at the same time).
