Tuva is a very ancient country of shamans and throat singers. It lies between the Siberian forests and the central Asian desert, marking the center of Asia. The high Sayan Mountains protected Tuva, keeping it wild and pure. Tuvinian people love nature and live in harmony, fearing the rage of the powerful spirits of the mountain.

Moon Heart is a shaman from Tuva, a very powerful healer who speaks to the stars. "To heal a person I invoke his star asking it to come down. When the star appears, a strong heat falls from above and my eyes are filled with tears. The strength of the star comes down from the sky until, gradually, everybody bends to the earth."
