The Legend of Ondar the Groovin' Tuvan

A Modern-Day Folktale

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The Legend of Ondar the Groovin’ Tuvan is a quirky alternative Santa Claus story that entertains curious minds both young and old. Connecting the legendary Tuvan throat-singer Ondar (1962-2013) with characters like Richard Feynman, the Montgolfier Brothers, and Frank Zappa, this modern-day folktale by Ralph Leighton is delightfully illustrated by LA architect Bart Choy, narrated by the hip and cool Roy "Future Man" Wooten, and features the music and vocals of the late singer himself in his haunting Medley in the Style of Ondar. 15 pages, or 7 minutes when the audio narration is played.

Customer Reviews


Very amusing. Ondar would be grinning.


A must for fans of Tuvan throat singing, alternate universes, harmonic overtones, and the noble eightfold Way (with a sense of humor). Not to mention stamp collecting, the Pasadena Rose Parade, and flying reindeer! This is an excellent picture-book for grownups, and with its Christmas and New Year theme would make a good inexpensive gift. It would be great for kids too, as long as you’re willing to explain reindeer eating magic mushrooms and flying high to them! There’s a fantastic, catchy audio track of Ondar singing his 2 notes at once. Beautiful tribute to Ondar, mega-voice and mega-soul of this world.
