Siberian throat singers at Dordt March 24
March 15, 2010
Alash, a small group of traditional Tuvan throat singers, will demonstrate their unique talent on Wednesday, March 24, at 9 a.m. in the Music Building choir room, MB116
Throat singing is unique to Tuva, an area at the southern edge of Siberia, which has cultural ties with Mongolia and is now part of the Russian federation.
Performers are able to produce multiple pitches at the same time. Masters of traditional Tuvan instruments as well as the art of throat singing, Alash subtly infuses traditional Tuvan music and culture with western elements, creating their own unique style that is fresh and new, yet true to their Tuvan musical heritage.
All who are interested are welcome to attend the presentation hosted by the music department.
