No, that's perfect, Slayertplsko!  Thanks for your help.  Thanks for bringing this thread back to the surface again too.  This thread was starting to get over my head.  So I took a break from it and hasn't made my way back yet.  Also I can get into only so many music threads at a time.  (excuses, excuses....)  This gives an opportunity to revisit what's been posted and start to rebuild again.  Thanks, Slayertplsko!

Now, that the thread has been lying here, dead, still and helpless, it's time for resurrection. I'm gonna start with some homophony from Slovakia.

I could try to get more, but not much is on YouTube. Actually this might be a good comparison to other homophonic or polyphonic songs from various parts of the world.

Thanks, GökTürk!

I always wanted to listen to some Turkic Central Asian music, but somehow had no luck in finding anything. I'm looking forward to it. It seems I have to download it, so it'll take me a while to get trough all of it. I'll write my impressions as soon as possible and contribute with another bunch of folk music.

Keep it coming.Smile

I've just downloaded AltaiKai. Sounds great, but isn't it already influenced by western music??

Yeah,some sounds and instruments are similar.So Native American Culture and Central Asia Turkic culture are suprisinly similar.
Example this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRjkg91VE2o&feature=channel_page

 Name of this Turkic [Tuva] instrument is "Temur Komuz".It's one of Turk's oldest instruments.
Also You can this voice in a western film :D

I were very suprised when I have listened the songs,too.

It seems you misunderstood me. I didn't mean western music as a term applied to the supposed music of Wild West, but western music in general - i.e. everything that is nowadays produced in Europe and America. I was just surprised that there was an actual harmonic cadence in the song, expecially in the first one, that was similar to those used in some popular music today (the roots of which could be found in Africa and also Latin American music and then in Spain and so on). So I thought it was some kind of a fusion of traditional Turkic music and contemporary popular music. But then, it is also possible that it is a feature of Asian traditional music, as well as of some contemporary music. And since I'm not much familiar with world music it confused me.

I am familiar with the instrument but have never seen it in western film. It is also called Jew's harp and it is one of the oldest instruments, quite widespread. For instance, it is used in Scandinavian folk music and was also used by some Scandinavian metal bands, namely Bathory.

You can hear it in the very beginning. They made a more extensive used of it, but I can't find anything right now.

Anyway, I listened to Huun Huur Tu yesterday and it was much much better than AltaiKai. And if I was suspicious about the purity of AltaiKai, that's nonexistent here. What is especially interesting is the kind of throat singing used in this music. I can't figure out how it is done.

I dont know how the real central music is.I dont search it.But it can,for me.So Dangaa Kosyabar's a lot of songs are Electro/techno.

Voice of Jew's harp is deeper than Temur.I dont know view of Jew's harp,but Temur has been invented by Turks.
