Ondar: Echoes Of Tuva. Ondar performs a tour de force -- from an ancient shamanic prayer for Richard Feynman, through throat-singing favorites, to modern songs.  For those who like their Ondar straight up with no chaser.

In this recording, Kongar-ol performs Tuvan music old and new- from Ancient shamanic chat for the soul of Pasadena's illustrious physicist, adventured and raconteur Richard Feynman, through several old songs that feature two-notes-at-the-same-time Tuva throat-singing to a pair of modern songs accompanied by the guitar. Total time 52.20.

Ondar: Back Tuva Future -- The Adventure Continues.   Kongar-ol Ondar with guest appearances by Willie Nelson, Randy Scruggs, Bill Miller, and Richard Feynman. These 10 tracks take on the shape of a multicultural hoe-down in more ways than one. Curiously, the American country ethos and Tuvan tradition have much in common -- a lonely cowboy herding his livestock, longing for a pretty woman -- so the subject matter is harmonious. There are also a couple of hip-hop/rap tracks and occasional New Age reference points, in addition to a "behind the scenes" hidden track.  Check out the official t-shirt!

Bela Fleck & The Flecktones: Live at the Quick.  See Ondar perform with Grammy-winning Bela Fleck and the Flecktones -- an amazing quartet of fantastic musicians--along with other special guests. Recorded at the Quick Center for Performing Arts in Connecticut, this is a wonderful concert. Ondar appears for about 10 minutes near the end of the DVD & VHS video, and is brilliant as always.  He performs in A Moment So Close and Alash Khem on the CD.

Ondar: Tuva Groove.  More great fun from the Back Tuva Future CD.  A maxi-single, this CD has remixes of Tuva Groove to that will keep you grooving.  There's also a track about Ondar, throat-singing, and how the CD was made.

Genghis Blues: Music from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.  More than just a record, this is also the story of the journey of Paul Pena, a fine blind American bluesman who learned Tuvan throat singing well enough to win a contest in Tuva. His solo tracks, especially his take on Robert Johnson's "Terraplane Blues," are the real blues deal, but this record truly takes off when Pena and Ondar duet. The blues and the eerie, often-guttural sounds of throat singing make a natural match, one that simply bewitches with the clear overtones and melodies, while the guitar and Tuvan banjo offer simple, but very plaintive, accompaniment.
