Rocking nomad once again hit the road with the best hard growling songs from the heart of Asia.
"The Ways of Nomad" - is the first official best of compilation by famous Tuvan folk-rock band Yat-Kha. The band was founded in early 90-s by talented singer and guitarist Albert Kuvezin conjointly with Russian avant-garde, electronic composer Ivan Sokolovsky.

The album consists of some best and remarkable songs, which shows the true milestones in bands artistic biography. From early experiments with ethno-electronic sounding and continuous attempts to find their own musical style, to hard-biting folk-rock anthems of our days, created in collaboration with some famous western artists.
