I think our coordination is better than the Planet media. Now, I like this a lot, Mongolia, I was wondering how it would compare with Khusugtun. You will think I'm mad but I'm sure part of that song shared a tune with something in Italian opera.......Madame Butterfly, I think......what's happened here? I've lost the broadcast.
off to Mongolia. Is Lucy at the sea-side?
Ahh, no on the edge of the Gobi desert. Can't the beeb afford a nice camel for her to ride on?
Couldn't hear the throat-singer very well - a bit lost in the mix. Maybe get him better on a second listen.
Lat you get to do your Ulaanbataar bit at the Choijin Lama Temple Museum
Not at at all, in the immortal words of Dirk Gently, 'everything is connected'

You couldn't hear the voices very well. I couldn't hear anything for five minutes. No FM here at all from 9.22pm. Quick changeover to Listen Live. Back in action.
Site of intangible heritage - brilliant!
The volume and quality seems quite low generally - shame, all that effort and then the broadcasting bit is flakey. I blame the government.
'the certificate on the wall of the jer' - it's probably what to do in case of a fire. Ahh no, it's the UNESCO site certification. Good stuff.
Wonder why it's called a Long Song? could the clue be in the name?
.....They say that Lucy is most at home with Latin music but this works really well. More political, this week, isn't it? Less whimsical but equally spiritual. I'm not going to try yet to discover the names of these tremendous musicians.
You will recall though that Ulambayer Khurgibaatar plays donbar in Khusagtun while Chuluunbaatar Oyungerel is one of the leading voices and horse head fiddle players. Many of their names seem to have "Baatar" in them.

......Long names, Global, long songs. I love the throat singers. The ones called Ray are best.
Beat boxing overtone - sounds like chess boxing as a concept.
