Many people asking me how i managed to learn jaw harp so good. Well, i have some tricks. One of them is practicing in the water. If you can manage to get good control practicing double strocks (for instance) in the water, which is not easy at all - then outside water it will be very fluent:). Here i'm playing Altaian Khomus.

Shoul Khymat Dancers
Most relevant translation of Shuol Khymat term is Photosynthesis Dance (capturing-solar-energy dance)
Shuol Khymat were usually celebrated in Ancient Kuzhebar twice a year at spring (Ashuol Khymat) and at autumn (Yshuol Khymat). Ancient Kuzhebar people considered the sun as a source of the great power, which can be used in various ways. Their method of solar energy utilization is very similar to the description of photosynthesis process. We think it s connected with their belief that human and plant worlds are not separated, more than humans are partly plants. It might be said that kuzhebar people had a peculiar knowledge about what we call now photosynthesis and vitamin D fixation.

Three sonic travellers on their journey through scapes of ancient Kuzhebar, present ethno world fusion and future ambients melt their musical identities into one sound. Born in three different regions of the planet they came together to share their wide-spanned instrumental skills, blending exotic sculptures with earthy grooves and distinctive melodies, creating mind-shifting rhythms played with trancey facileness.
