This year, Alash was scheduled to perform at The Rotunda on April 2nd but had to instead cancel the rest of their tour and return home. While they cannot perform in concert right now, Alash will present a throat-singing demonstration with Q & A, from their homes in Tuva! This will be a fun way for you to get to know the ensemble, their singing methods, and some history behind the songs.
Please note the earlier-than-usual event time of 11am Philly time. Since Tuva is 11 hours ahead of Philadelphia, we had to schedule this accordingly. The added bonus is that children can hopefully join as well!
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. SPACE IS LIMITED. PLEASE RESERVE ONE SPOT PER HOUSEHOLD. Please register HERE. A Zoom link will be sent to you the day of the event. All guests will be muted for the demo and then unmuted for the Q & A.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
ALASH are masters of Tuvan throat singing (xöömei), a remarkable technique for singing multiple pitches at the same time. What distinguishes this gifted trio from earlier generations of Tuvan throat singers is the subtle infusion of modern influences into their traditional music. One can find complex harmonies, western instruments, and contemporary song forms in A
lash’s music, but its overall sound and spirit remain decidedly Tuvan.
