On their last visit, Huun Huur Tu brought the steppes of central Asia to the Alberta Rose, wowing the audience with traditional Tuvan throat singing. Using this amazing technique, one singer produces multiple notes simultaneously to mesmerizing effect.
Known as the top band from this region, they have traveled extensively and have collaborated with artists of many styles. They incorporate aspects of electronica and other Western genres into their organically produced sound.

This very special show is not to be missed.

Huun Huur Tu | 8:00 PM
The whistling of the high-mountain wind forms eerie overtones and postmodern statement. The repeated thrum of a string against wood and hide turns into a meditative, evocative figure straight from the avant garde. The descendents of isolated Siberian herdsmen make serious, strangely universal music out of some of the planets quirkiest acoustics.

The Tuvan acoustic quartet Huun Huur Tu prove that Tuvan music can take plenty of intelligent innovation. Using traditional instruments and drawing subtly on 20th-century composers, funky rhythms, and the palette of electronica, Huun Huur Tu transform ancient songs into complex acoustic compositions.

As they began touring in the West, Huun Huur Tu almost single-handedly introduced the outside world to the boundless wealth of Tuvan traditions, thanks in great part to their superior musicianship. Hailing from the high pastures of the Altai Mountains in south central Siberia, the musicians have spent decades honing the overtone singing, instrumental approaches, and vibrant songs of their home. more >>>
