Oidupaa Vladimir Oiun
Oidupaa Vladimir Oiun is a throat singer from Tuva, Russa. He sings in the kargyraa style, which is a deep undertone technique. He was seen as a threat by the occupying Russian forces for singing protest songs and was falsely convicted on trumped up charges of murder and the corruption of minors. He spent 33 years in the work camps where the album “Divine Musice from Jail” was recorded. He is a living legend in the Tuva Republic, and continues to perform today.
