“There is a legend, they say, that many years ago it was a woman who began performing throat singing. It may be true. But the years are passing by, the time is changing. There was a time when women performers were rejected and from that time on women stopped performing throat singing. But now there are women ministers, women presidents. Why could there not be women throat singers?”
