Great tuneage, great images.
Who would say such a thing? Anyone feeling a little Miltonesque I'd imagine.

Variation on the old RAAF adage, 'Better the King of the sh-- than the sh-- of Kings'.

Haha,no comments about the song(except DSW's) and many about the quote.

:)

Don't know what the song itself was saying, but the music was haunting and I enjoyed it. To me it had similar qualities to Sigur Ros "Takk", thanks Tony.

It's ancient Turkish music,gumtree.In Turkey,we created another way of folk music,but our relatives at central Asia are still use ancestral traditions.And this example is performed by Huun Huur Tu,a Tuvan group.They call our people back to their ancestral way of life,pure,natural and deep...

It's the kind of music which was probably listened to by Attila,Genghis,Tamerlane ;) Music of shamans,who discovered the way of making peace with nature...

I tried to translate the lyrics:
Ancestor's Call

O,my Yenisei(one of holy rivers in ancient Turkish religion Tengriism),my mount Sayan
My homeland since ancient times
Beauty of "sıggıt and kömey"(throat singing) songs
My poems since ancient times

Ancestors of "sıggıt and kömey" still
wander around of stone monuments
(Despite the loss of body) Soul and heart must survive
So,we're still performing "sıggıt and kömey",as their descendants

Ancestors of "Kargyrra" still
Turn around of stone monuments
To make your petrified hearts more soft
We're still performing "sıggıt and kömey",as their descendants...

Thanks Tony for taking the trouble to translate and for the other links :) I didn't realise what an ancient traditional art it was.
