Introduced to throat singing by his father and the great master Gennadi Tumat, Mongun-ool Ondar won the Grand Prize at the International Throat Singing Competition when he was only 16. He is considered the most gifted singer of his generation and has performed in concert around the world. In addition to his exceptional vocal mastery, Mongun-ool makes instruments such as the igil horsehead fiddle, the byzaanchy vertical spike fiddle and the doshpuluur lute for himself and his fellow Tuvan musicians.
