The Voice Australia Highlights, Bukhu Ganburged's 'Mother and Father' Performance
There have always been many talented singers in Mongolia. Developed vocal data among the Mongols in blood: in ancient times, the nomadic Mongols sang songs on the road so that it would not be boring, sang about the wanderings of their ancestors to their children, they performed khoomei - throat singing. In addition, not a single Mongolian holiday did not manage without songs. And many vocal traditions of Mongolia persist to this day.
Because of this, the Mongols sing wonderfully, even if they don't put in much effort. And already if will apply something amazing will happen! This was shown to us by a Mongolian singer named Bukhu Ganburged: he came to the Voice and struck audience with his unique performance of the song "Mother and Father".
Moreover, he did not come to our, Russian, Voice, and not even to his own, Mongolian The Voice of Mongolia. A musician from Ulaanbaatar came to The Voice Australia.
Speech by Bukhchuluun Ganburged
This musician is virtuoso throaty Mongolian singing. Also a professional player Maureen Khuur - this is the name of the Mongolian two-stringed instrument, resembling a huge violin. Mongolian nomads invented him to play the music of the "steppes": the sound of the instrument imitates the blows of the wind and the neighing of horses in the field.
Even before performing on the Australian show The Voice, Buhu was popular musician. At first he played in Ulaanbaatar, but then moved to Australia. Here he was recognized full a citizen for the fact that he makes an invaluable contribution to the culture of the country with his work.
And the contribution of the musician is really invaluable: he performs Mongolian folk songs in his native language. What the musician sings rarely can be heard even in Mongolia itself, but he continues to carry his traditions to the masses:
And judging by how the mentors and viewers reacted to The Voice Australia, it's not in vain - all the mentors turned around and sat with their mouths open, trying to understand how Buhu makes such sounds. Perhaps they had never heard Mongolian throat singing before - it not very popular. But the guy's talent was recognized by everyone - he went into the voice.
The video of Bukhchuluun's performance on The Voice has almost 2 million views. This huge figure allowed the musician to become even more popularwhat he was and to attract the interest of the youth of Australia in Mongolian folk music.
