descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The release of this CD marks the 50th anniversary of Sainkho Namchylak, the extraordinary and totally unique artist from Tuva. Nomad is a compilation consisting of 14 songs presenting Sainkho in different contexts from solo to big-band and in different styles of singing accompanied by different sets of musicians. Almost half of the songs have never been released in the West before. Prepare yourself for the most beautiful melodies followed by the most extraordinary sounds which can be produced by the only singer on this planet - Sainkho Namchylak."-Leo

"[...] So extraordinary is Namchylak, with her seven octave range and ability to produce a vast range of sounds, that it is unbelievable that all the singing here is by the same person. This is an extraordinary album. As a showcase of what Namchylak is capable of, it works fine; as an introduction to her work, it works fine. As an album to be listened to at one sitting it may be just too diverse to be coherent and satisfying-an album of good tracks rather than a good album. [...]"-John Eyles, All About Jazz
