Dmitry Strakovsky - Top 10 asian brands (2008)
The very idea of simple opposition of cultural "East" and "West" (often framed as higher spirituality vs. material prosperity) is called into question. Chanting, interspersed with occasional "a la Tuva" throat singing, is used to evoke an idea of "Eastern" spirituality, while the content, quite materialistic and "Western" undermines the method of delivery (and points to current economic conditions.) This unstable narrative is a way of complicating the binary opposition, which all too often defines our worldview.
