The Sakha Republic lies in Russian Federation. Its most distinctive national instrument is the khomus, a lamellophone.

The Yakut people are a large ethnic group in Sakha. They are known for an epic poem called Olonkho. This epic is performed a cappella, generally at festivals, always by one man alone. The timbre and tone of the singer reveal the roles of the different characters.
