– this is a custom high-tech, low-frequency, shamanic khomus by the master builder Николай Бурцев (Burtcev, Nikolai) of Yakutsk, Siberia. an upgraded guimbarde of his series "tankha," it has now arrived and is living in California. it is called "Olonkho." the design is my personal sign combined with a motif of ancient Tengrianism with the meaning of "shamanism plus scientific knowledge." as i am just learning to play for the first time it is truly a great honor to receive such an exquisite instrument.
– special thanks to Хомусчут Андрей for connections & encouragement!
