Olga Podluzhnaya Uutai, Blessing of Nature
Olga Podluzhnaya is an expert performer on the xomus (or “khomus”), the most ancient musical instrument – a traditional jaw harp. Coming from Yakutsk, Russia and having passed through a classical musical education while young, Podluzhnaya started to attend xomus lessons. The Jew’s harp, also known as jaw harp, mouth harp, Ozark harp, trump, or juice harp, consists of a flexible metal or bamboo tongue or reed attached to a frame. Over time her skill would grow to the point where her on-stage flair can be described as something absolutely fantastic. The sounds from this tiny instrument will summon ancient imagery in ones mind accompanied by voices of nature.
Here is Blessing of Nature, a concert in the city of Aldan, to celebrate the 85th anniversary of the Aldansky District, in the Sakha Republic, in the Sakha Republic, in north-eastern Russia. What an amazing performance!! Olga Podluzhnaya Uutai ..
