Global Notes: The Music of Sainko Namtchylak

This week on Global Notes we bring you the sounds of Tuvan throat singer Sainko Namtchylak. She has just released her 45th album! On this latest album, she teams up with a couple members from the Tuareg desert blues band Tinariwen - the Steppes meet the Sahara. It’s a new twist on the ancient tradition of throat singing, which was first developed by nomadic herdsmen in Central Asia.
