10 Days, 10 Countries, 10 Songs: Day 4

I wouldn’t normally describe myself as a heavy metal aficionado. That said, I love these guys from Mongolia.

For me, the use of throat singing and the Morin Khuur (horse-head fiddle) is what really sets this music apart as unique and interesting.

Their YouTube view count and record on the Billboard hard rock charts would indicate that other people agree! I recommend watching with the subtitles on, as the lyrics are quite interesting.
