ALASH: Throat Singing from Tuva Saturday, November 9, 2013, 8 p.m.
Stephens Hall Theatre
Tuvan throat singing is a remarkable technique for singing multiple pitches at the same time. Masters of traditional Tuvan instruments as well as the art of throat singing, the members of the acclaimed ensemble Alash are deeply committed to traditional Tuvan music and culture. At the same time, they are fans of western music. Believing that traditional music must constantly evolve, the musicians subtly infuse their songs with western elements, creating their own unique style that is fresh and new, yet true to their Tuvan musical heritage.
Tickets: $15 advance; $20 general; $10 for AA&CC members and TU students with valid ID.
