An Intro to Throat-Singing

A 60 Minute Tuvan Masterclass w/ Alash

Throat-singing. If you’ve ever wondered how it’s done, here’s your chance to learn from a trio of masters. Join us at the main concert space in Bombyx on Saturday morning for an introduction to the ancient tradition, called xöömei in the Tuvan language, developed among the nomadic herdsmen of Inner Asia.

The Tuvan way of making music is based on appreciation of complex sounds with multiple layers or textures. To the Tuvan ear, a perfectly pure tone is not as interesting as a sound which contains hums, buzzes, or extra pitches that coexist with the main note being sung.

No experience necessary. All ages welcome but children under twelve must be accompanied by an adult.
