I like how the lyrics are not available, great tune nevertheless.

So the person who downvotes Kenne's comment; because they expressed joy? Gratitude? Love? Curiosity? or, is it because the downvoter doesn't know about the skip button? but they have time to read the comments and downvote?

Absolutely LOVE this song. Stop whatever you’re doing and turn it up kind of song. Throat singing is such an incredible skill. Sting was wise to have some throat singers on some of his songs. I know it’s not for everyone. Listen carefully and you can hear different harmonics all at once from just the one singer. And no it’s most definitely not Autotuned.
I love it, and my kids too! We have two small fans of Mathias : )
He is completely mad and lost in music!!
Great!! I never heard of him before.  Thanx RP!

No.
Thank you for introducing us (me and everyone I meet to whom I immediately say "you MUST listen to this!") to Mathias Duplessy!

Also, the music video for this track is absolutely brilliant despite (or thanks to?!) being homemade  
Be drunk in a desert
this guy is like the "Andrew Bird" of Mongolia.

Cool.

I AGREE!
Who, laddy, who? :o)

I'd never have heard Mongolian music without RP - viva l'ecletticismo!

Sorry, perplexed by this comment... In what way is it 'not really rhythmic'?
better than those arseholes the war on drugs
Too chunky - not really rhythmic. 
makes me want to dance

and I'm a bad dancer

but that don't stop me...next attempt at a Wilco show in Sep!!!!


Fun song!

What, no lyrics available?! 😛

(Would probably make any auto-trashlator-bot attempt to hang itself by it's own cat-5 cable, lol)
Do I hear the Tuvan Tom Waits?
I like this! Thanks!

Look after the king of R n R please 
Bumping this from 7 -> 8, it makes me stop & listen every time
Sing it, brother! 
I love it!
It makes me think that what I would love even more is Mongolian music performed by Mongols themselves and not a lost Frenchman :)

Sort of grows on and into you. 4>6. May go higher on repeated listenings.

and make a great song about spinach while having a beer together!!! 
I really like this, but this time I heard Joan Baez' "Play Me Backwards" at the beginning. Never noticed the similarity.

Funny how every time Bill plays something in a foreign language there's a certain uptick in the SuckoBarfo ratings.  It can't be all Golden Murican' Oldies. Get some global perspective!

There's a documentary about Richard Feyman's curiosity and joy... told in his quest to go to Mongolia in the 80s (iron curtain still up) so he could experience Tuvan throat singing in person. Delightful.

Genghis Blues is another good doc about love of Tuva.
Move 'em on, head 'em up
Head 'em up, move 'em on
Move 'em on, head 'em up
Sore throat!

So you DO understand then.  After all, you used a double negative.

The best music discovery in 2018.
My kid loves it and bounces around whenever I play anything from this guy!



Thanks RP for letting me discover it
Occasionally sounds like Leonard Cohen makes some very short cameos during the song. 
I love to sing along Mathias. 
Anyone found a translation?  I got the first line then gave up on the rest something about the tragedy of Chardo

I believe Mathias Duplessy is singing in Tuvan.
Wow, love this! Surprised it was a Feench artist in Mongolia; thought it might have been South American. Thanks Bill :-)
Not all music has to sound like "ours".  This is better.
Awful.
I Love This.
Makes me want to travel to Mongolia {#Biggrin}  Love the slideshow.  Where else would we hear this?  NOWHERE!  Thank you Bill & Rebecca.
I went 8→9 on this today.  I recently watched some of Mathias' videos and was impressed by how cool he seems.  Would love to hang out with him in Mongolia some time riding motorbikes and having fun.  Long Live RP!!
wonder how authentic the melody is
sounds westernized
so much awesomeness
Reminds me of David Byrne. Not a bad thing!

Hadn't heard this before, but it makes a nice change from 'violins of the world/crazy horse'.

I'm in the "I like this track on its own merits" and not the "I like this track because it shows BillG's eclecticism."

What I find interesting, is that in hearing it now about 7 times, I'm still caught off-guard when I hear the intro - so far I am not able to identifiy it until after I see the song name/track name on the player.

Anyways, as always, Long Live RP!

Mongolian throat singing in this song... low gluttural voice while simulaneously whistling through the lips.  So cool.  
 
why?
Hearing some incarnation of Paul Pena there.
Thank you Bill for the introduction....I am confident that without RP, a Mongolian tune would have never been added as a treat
haha I just commented that rp "gets" women. guess rp also gets barking, honking, poncho wearing, French, nomadic yodelers! great mix as always. "A Good Life." A great day.
what a barf sound interrupts this song? if it cut, it will turn a good song. imho.
Thanks Bill for the introduction... checkout some of his other stuff... fab!!

Haha, it's like a musical lucky dip, every 20 seconds it changes to some other random style.
love this {#Dancingbanana_2}
This reminds me of a talking heads song
 
somebody in RP is not indifferent to mongolian yodeler :)
Give that man a whiskey for his throat
Marginal ...
I for one like it,, which is why I subscribe to R/P,,monthly,,
That was rather enjoyable. 
I blame Paul Pena...

Reminds of a fun/crazy Western-style movie set in 1939 Manchuria:

Part of me wants to be a wiseass and complain about how this is nice enough but is criminally overplayed on commercial radio.

I'll resist and say instead that I love RP as a destination for hearing stuff like this that I'd never otherwise get exposed to.
Cracked a smile 😀😉😍
This is just sooooo RP. Vive l'éclectisme!
this is fun!{#Dancingbanana_2}
