Biography

The man behind Yat-Kha, Albert Kuvezin, was a founding member of Tuvan throat singing sensations Huun-Huur-Tu, but Kuvezin felt hemmed in by the group's very traditional approach and founded Yat-Kha as an outlet for his interest in rock 'n' roll. If the band's 1999 release Dalai Beldiri straddled some previously unknown line between indie rock and Tuvan throat singing, 2006's Re-Covers completely undid classic rock warhorses with Kuvezin's treatment, which ranges from gravelly-voiced to downright sub-sonic. (Tom Waits could learn a thing or two from the album.) This man hails from a little-known former Soviet republic, but he deserves to be the next indie rock darling.
