Bandpic: Huun Huur Tu

Tuvan throat singing and overtone singing is one of the world’s most exciting vocal techniques, and Huun-Huur-Tu are brilliant masters of a wide range of styles. For twenty years, this ensemble from Tuva in Southern Siberia have dedicated themselves to the old and forgotten songs of their home region, skilfully linking tradition and innovation. For Western ears, these songs sound fascinating and exotic, but at the same time contemporary and modern.
