World Music, Vol. III - Yat Kha

Shown above is a live version of one of my favourite songs, Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart", performed by the Tuvan folk/rock/electro/post punk band band Yat Kha, in a very unique and wonderful way featuring the distinctive Kargyraa style throat singing of vocalist Albert Kuvezin.

Here's the studio version:

Great stuff, from halfway around the world!

Well, if a tree or a rock could sing, it'd probably sound like Yat Kha - very bizarre! I bet Ian Curtis would've gotten a kick out if it though...
