If you like Tuvan Throat Singing, go find and see the movie Genghis Blues. It's about a blind blues singer (Paul Pena, he wrote "Jet Airliner," a song that Steve Miller made famous) who heard Tuvan throat singing on the shortwave radio, learned how to do it, and then went to Tuva to compete in their yearly throat singing competition.

And with all this talk about Tuva, how come no one's mentioned Feynman?
