So awesome! I’ve heard about this animated cartoon a long time ago and today I was lucky to get the video from Yakutia Music & Folklore Museum (Yakutsk, Russia).
Olonkho is the Sakha (Yakut) heroic epos. In 2005, it was declared by UNESCO International Competition Jury as a masterpiece of the oral and intangible heritage of the humanity.
What is it about? Watch the animated cartoon and get an idea. The story is based on the «Nyurgun Bootur the Swift» olonkho story. Though it is in Japanese, but images says more than thousands of words.
Created by Alexei & Afanassiy Ushnitskies’s studio «Sulus Games» (www.sulusgames.ru).
