Because it’s Friday, you’re probably looking for a weird music video to pass around to kill time before the weekend. Here it is.

I, uh… Well, she’s good at it. Whatever this is. (Via Danny)

If you’re still with me, that’s Olga Podluzhnaya performing the traditional music of the Yakutia, who live in northeast Siberia. The song is called “Sounds of Nature.” And she’s not playing a Jew’s harp, exactly. It’s called a khomus or a vargan and is a traditional instrument for the native people of Mongolia, Siberia and Altai.

It’s less weird when you understand it, right?
