Amazing Sound

Olena Uutay Podluzhnaya is an expert performer
on the xomus (or "khomus"), a traditional jaw or "Jew's" harp, which she accompanies with "voices of nature."  I believe this woman is of Tuvan origin, where the jaw harp (it is not of Jewish origin and has no connection to Jews) is a traditional musical instrument.
