Batsükh was born in 1990 in the municipality of Tsengel, in the province of Bayan-Ölgii in Mongolia. Initiated by Papizan Badar, he learned Khöömei with his older brother Bütemj, and listened to the recordings. He developed his practice in Tuva alongside the famous overtone singers of the Alash and Chirgilchin ensembles. He graduated from the music college of the Tuva Republic (Russia). He masters several techniques of Khöömei, in Mongolian and Tuva styles: Khöömii (pressed overtone singing), Sygyt (whistled KhöömIi), Kargyraa (deep Khöömei), ezengileer, borbagnadyr; the playing of the igil fiddle and the toshpuluur lute; and violin making, learned from Aldar Tamdyn. Batsükh participates in many traditional festivals and arts competitions, as well as in national and regional Khöömei competitions.
Johanni Curtet is a musician, ethnomusicologist, teacher of overtone singing and producer. Trained first by Tran Quang Hai, his traditional learning was provided to him by D. Tserendavaa in the Altai Steppes, and B. Odsüren at the University of Arts and Culture of Ulaanbaatar. He teaches Khöömii at the Philharmonie of Paris, the University Rennes 2, Le Pont Supérieur, DROM; in festivals such as Les Suds in Arles, Les Orientales, for professional musicians (Camille), the associative network in amateur practice, and recently at United States universities on the East Coast. Apart from his main trio, Meïkhâneh, he has played with Voix du Sahel (C. Zekri, Y. Moumouni…); in trio with Tserendavaa & Tsogtgerel, in Urbi&Orbi by Pierrick Lefranc (with X. Dessandre Navarre, J. Florent, S. Bernardo, J.-B. Henry) or the electric opera Eve futures by Alain Basso (with É. Trémolière, L. Tejeda…). As a researcher, he is a temporary employee and attached to the University Rennes 2. In 2010, he participated in the inscription of Mongolian Khöömii on the representative list of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity at UNESCO.
