Genghis Blues

This captivating, Oscar-nominated offering centers on blind San Francisco blues musician Paul Pena, who taught himself the unusual art of 'throat singing' after hearing a broadcast on a Russian radio station years earlier. Acting upon an invite to take part in a singing contest in the Siberian region of Tuva, Pena travels there and befriends the country's throat singing champion.
