Korean and Mongolian Music@FN Kulturufer

Kulturufer in Friedrichshafen (culture shore) It lasts more than a week. I wanted to see what kind of events there'd be tonight and I found this

Traditionelle Klänge aus Korea und der Mongolei
Die Stücke von Samul Nori (Spiel der vier Dinge) basieren auf traditioneller koreanischer Perkussionsmusik. Es sind archaische, wuchtig pulsierende Klänge mit Trommeln und Gongs mit mitreißendem Groove, der seinesgleichen sucht.
Enkh Jargal spielt die Morin Khoor (Pferdegeige), auf der er die alten Melodien der mongolischen Hofmusik intoniert. Seine Stimme reicht über fünf Oktaven, vom abgrundtiefen Schamanengesang (Kharhira) bis zum Obertongesang (Xöömi) ohne jede Attitüde und esoterisches Beiwerk, einfach als Wunder der Natur.

I love Korean [Samulnori] and I had never seen Mongolian [overtone singing] live!

I really enjoyed it. Made me want to go to Asia more... made me crave kim-chee, too *lol*

The audience loved it, too. They didn't stop clapping their hands and cheering. There were two encores. The Koreans and the Mongolian (he spoke German very well, the Koreans came directly from Korea) played together, too.
I filmed the 2nd encore (Zugabe, scroll down), it was all a jam (Improvisation).

Enkh Jargal, the Mongolian singer, was funny. Once one could hear a sirene outside and he started imitating it w/ overtone singing. He rapped once, too (see jam as well). Since the only German phrase the Korean leader of the group, King Ju Hong, could say was "Danke schön" (thank you very much), Enkh Jargal during the jam (see video below) started rapping "Danke schön", animating the Koreans to rap that, too.
