Djangarchi is a film about Oleg Mankuev, one of four throat singers, the Djangarchi, from Kalmikija. Kalmikija is an autonomous republic of the Russian Federation and the only Buddhist country in Europe. Djangar is an epic poem that has been sung since ancient times. This poem is the carrier of national pride and identity of the people of Kalmikija throughout generations. Djangarchi has also been called ‘the carrier of eternity‘. Conceived as an exciting road movie documentary, the film follows Oleg's journey from Kalmikija to Croatia, in search of his own identity and new musician friends. By singing this old epic poem, Oleg is about to leave his motherland Kalmikija and is about to go to Rijeka (Croatia) to cooperate with Damir Martinovic, the frontman and the producer of Let 3, a famous and surely the most eccentric Croatian band.
