Description
This dub features some Tuvan-style throat singing, mixed in with a Blues harmonica loop. Remarkable what sounds the human voice can make! The throat singing samples were taken from here:

Lots of atmosphere in your peice. Pretty cool. I have an album of Tuvan throat singing I picked up 8 or 10 years ago when a group was touring in the west. I was at a mall when I heard this unearthly cool sound and there they were. Short time later I started hearing Paul Penna's stuff on CKUA (Alberta based public radio). You made a cool choice for source sounds.

good work
when i was training to be a monk i met a tibetan throat singer. when those monks do many chants its the same effects. surprisingly its not that hard to do just takes practice.

you left good space in this song. although a little loss of interest at some point. the mid way point....maybe fad out that rhythm section earlier and introduce it later?
i dontk now. its not bad....but some where around there i have some issues. :) just trying to be constructive.

good job though!

Superb
Blown away. nicely layered. Needs shorter introduction to
climax. Over all very relaxing. Great job

Paul Penna
is an incredible man. His story is singular and compelling.
I would encourage anyone who has not heard of
throatsinging to dig out the documentary on him.
(Genghis Blues) He has mixed blues with Tibetan
throatsinging. He even went on to become a winner of an
annual throatsinging contest in Tibet.

You have a quite a mix of sounds. However the bass line
is too redundant for my tastes.

Thanks though for bringing our attention to Paul and
throatsinging.

a little too bare bones for my taste
At first hearing the throat singing, I was reminded of some sounds Adrian Sherwood has used for African Head Charge, but overall this just does not have enough texture for me also the complete lack of a bass line throws me and the one harmonica sample got tiresome.

5-5-7-5 I might have gone lower, but you pulled something good out by using a unique sample source.
