Paul Pena

Paul Pena taught himself Tuvan throat singing after hearing it on the radio. They called him "Earthquake" because his voice was so low. There were no Tuvan to English dictionaries, so he used two dictionaries- one Tuvan to Russian and one Russian to English. He was blind, so he had to use something called an Optacon to read them - which is an interesting read itself.
