I remember hearing their sounds for the first time and being utterly puzzled. It was strange. It sounded like I wasn't hearing anything important, yet I wanted to listen. Of course, later on we were told how beautiful their music and speech was, and I suppose it was, but when I first heard it I think I expected more. It was, and still mostly is, a lot of what might be described as oceanic music. Sort of 'wavy'. This music is interupted with what we came to call their speech, rougher than an average males voice, but seemed to flow like Mongolian throat chanting. It wasn't unpleasant, and many people fell in love with it, but it wasn't any more spectacular than a human in the street asking for the time. You could easily make their sounds with your own tongue.
