MOTIVATIONS
It is a travel documentary about the traditional throat singing among the people of Tuva, a small republic in Siberia. A personal, laidback narration guides us through their nomadic culture and how it affects the producer. The jury regrets that the field recording is far from perfect, which made this choice difficult, but the engaging storytelling and the narrative structure make “The Song of Nature” a pleasing introduction to a unique musical tradition. This radio program appeals to a large audience.
