Ever wondered how China sounds like? Well, let us give you an overview through two enthralling documentaries that will bring you to Inner Mongolia and Tibet.
The Sound of Nature (30min)
Seeking the Tibetan Melody (40min)
27/02 English version
Duration: 30 min + 40 min
The Sound of Nature
Discover the stunning Mongolian vocal art of Khoomei (humai 呼麦 in Chinese) also called throat singing. Artists who master it can produce two or even more pitches simultaneously. The documentary follows Hanggai, a group of young Mongolian singers determined to promote their traditional ethnic art to China and the rest of the world.
Seeking the Tibetan Melody
FAN Qiang (范强) is a Chinese sound engineer who, tired of metropolitan noises, decided to flee to Lhasa to revitalize himself. There he records the sounds of Tibet. And from sutra chanting, to the sound of children reciting their lessons and finally to the drums of Tibetan opera, he catches the distant, mysterious and sometimes heavenly sounds immersed in everybody’s daily life in Tibet.
