Violons Barbares

Welcome to the fascinating world of Violons Barbares. Dandarvaanchig Enkhjargal on morin khuur and +Dimitar Golodov on gadulka are joined by French percussionist Fabien Guyot, with all three singing in various styles. Saulem ai is the ensemble's second record, and it starts off at a gallop. First comes the title track, a traditional song from Kazakhstan which translates to “My Beloved.” It's ostensibly a love song - with hoofbeats.
