"Gen-Dos" project is a combination of different styles of throat singing, ancient Tuvan shamans traditions with modern rock & electronic music.
Gennady Chamzyryn (Gendos) (group leader) is a real hereditary shaman, performs all styles of the Tuvan throat singing ("sygyt", "khoomei" & "kargyraa"). This exclusive material for the first time after legendary group "Yat-Kha" represents synthesis of the Tuvian folk music with rock and alternative electronic.
The album is bright and interesting. There is a lot of guitar, a bass, keyboard sound in the album & sometimes it comes to the trance-like grooves.
But Tuvan tradition here nevertheless is playing a great part, just like in art of many overs folk-oriented groups from Tuva. Though the producer of an album Alexander Medvedev is Russian, he lives and works in Kyzyl (Tuva capital) & makes all he can to represent the modern sound of Tuvan music on the base of it`s deep rooted traditions. We hope that behind album SHIZO I. D. Other works of musicians will follow also.
