The remote, diverse beauty of southern Siberia uncovered in RTD’s Tyva documentaries
Russia’s Tyva Republic in southern Siberia borders Mongolia and is home to nomadic indigenous people. Many uphold their lifestyle under threat from the encroaching modern world. One of the traditions is throat singing, which is seeing a revival. The film Tyva: Sounds of Nature examines how foreigners are drawn to learning about throat singing and stay, mesmerised by the beauty and majesty of the landscape. The haunting singing is unforgettable as it wafts across the open barren steppe of Tyva.
