Throat singing from Mongolia & Bagpipe and Drum music from Latvia.  There's a traditional Mongolian stringed instrument, at least two kinds of bagpipe, and several different drums.  The sounds blend amazingly  well.  See, this is why we need cultural exchange.  It's not misappropriation if you're all in there jammin' together. :D

Also, check out the horses.  They didn't look at all like what I've seen billed as "Mongolian" horses, which have stand-up manes.  It turns out there are several different types that can be called that, one of which is a stubby little horse with a double mane like those in the video.  Fascinating.
