Like a Bird or Spirit, Not a Face
"Sainkho Namtchylak is an experimental singer, born in 1957 in a secluded village in the south of Tuva. She has an exceptional voice, and is proficient in overtone singing. Her music encompasses avant-jazz, electronica, modern composition and Tuvan folk music. Audiences are astounded by the diversity of sounds Namtchylak can produce with her voice, from operatic soprano to birdlike squawks, from childlike pleas to soulful crooning, which at various moments elicits comparisons to Zap Mama, Patti Smith, Billie Holiday and Nina Hagen. Like A Bird Or Spirit, Not A Face is the latest addition to an impressive discography totaling over thirty albums in the past twenty years."
