    I saw a film on PBS which is a Public Broadcast Station in the USA & it was about Paul Pena going to Mongolia to sing Tuvan which isn't Russian but it's Mongolian & very hard to sing & towards the end of his trip to Mongolia he rode a horse which he was afraid because he's blind. I saw this film about 20 years ago or more & it was a GREAT film about Paul Pena which i never knew anything about him & I know a lot about Blues but just never heard about him until i saw that great film on PBS & he sure could play Blues & other music. Great MAN WHO WILL BE MISSED.

    Saw him perform with the Tuvan throatsinger, Kongar-Ol- Ondar, in San Francisco in 1999 when the Genghis Blues album and documentary first came out . The combo was pretty amazing! Like @battleaxed said below, if you like Paul Pena and you like Tuvan throat singing, the you've got to see the documentary:
