Genghis BluesDirector:Roko Belic USA 1998
In Genghis Blues, Pena makes the long and difficult journey to Tuva,
a republic at the very centre of Asia between Siberia and Mongolia,
which is throat singing's heartland. In a place where visitors from the
West are rare, a blind black bluesman who can hold his own in a throat
contest is more than a celebrity, he's a miracle.
Beautiful documentary which reminds us that music is a universal language that can go a long way towards bridging cultural and linguistic gaps.
