Yat-Kha is a band coming from Tuva, Southern Russia. Their music can be considered a mixture of local folk music, electronica, and ethnic music. Their leader is the vocalist Albert Kuvezin, famous for his “kargyraa” throat singing, the unique vocal style you hear in the song. It’s one of the many styles of Tvan throat singing styles popular in that geographical area: you can read more about them on Wikipedia.

The band Yat-Kha has been active since 1991, with 12 albums published until 2010. The song featured in the iPhone 15 Pro commercial comes from their 1995 album Yenisei Punk, one of their most popular releases. Since the song was featured in the Apple iPhone commercial, the number of streaming on Spotify and other platforms had a visible peak.

The lyrics of the song are very symbolic, you can find the English translation below:

The sky is dark, it’s dark, it’s dark, it’s dark
Look, it’s so loud, so loud, so loud

It’s coming to your health, it’s loud, it’s loud

It’s black and white, it’s loud, it’s loud
