World Music, Vol. I

Corporatized pop music has become so pervasive, to the point where it now exists as a sort of soundtrack for our lives, that we rarely if ever are exposed to music from other genres, or from the rest of the world. Accordingly, I've decided that every now and then I'll be posting a video of some of that "other" music, like this wonderful and haunting piece on the morin khuur, a traditional instrument of the Mongol people, just to remind myself, if no-one else, that there is more to music, and culture, than the "pop tart" du jour.
