    Do you want this sound coming from your kid's bedrooms on sunday morning? If not act now, play it tonite during dinner.

    Mongolia is getting to be a cool place, just watch out for their tendency to revere Chinggis Khan.

    Mongolians are steppe people - you ought to know more about them. They destroyed the western Roman Empire, rode into west European cities and towns, killed the rulers and said, We here! we're taking over.

    So modern France and Germany owe a lot to the Steppe people, as do Hungary, Bulgaria and Russia.

    But it doesn't stop there. The Xiongnu to the north of China, were the bane of the Chinese kingdoms before the first emperor. From some perspectives, the steppe people were THE big power. And they kept coming. Pushed back by the Qin (who were a related people) and the Han, relatives formed the Sui dynasty and then the Tang, and then the Yuan dynasty and then the Qing dynasty, as well as many smaller empires in what is now north China. North Korea may be more steppe people than anything else, and they are an important part of the South Korea ethnicity and Japan.

    Steppe people rule !!!

    The 3rd Tuvan throat singing has my vote. Different and interesting. Earlier today I was listening to the always beautiful Claude Debussy's "The Girl With the Flaxen Hair".

    It is a pleasure to hear and watch something so unique.

    Thank you for sharing.
