Funny multilayer-Khöömej from France | Mathias Duplessy

That’s a creative way of dealing with Mongolian Khöömej. Mathias Duplessy,

a French (film) composer and multi-instrumentalist, created this funny multilayer music video. Usually I prefer local singers with Khöömej. But Duplessy, who has also performed with Enkh Jargal, not only sings a good Khöömej style, but also brings here no copy of the style, but his very own, tasteful and thrilling interpretation of his Mongolian impressions. I like it. What do you think? Leave a comment.
