This is a beautiful documentary about the human spirit. This is definitely worth watching. The set of circumstances that brought all of the people connected to the film together is amazing. Lovely people and exciting music. Tannu Tuva, at least when this was filmed, is wondrous.

Paul Pena is a great musician. I have long been a fan of Asian throat singing. More complex than Inuit throat singing, but similar animal-language origin.
