Bady-Dorzhu Ondar Awarded Title of People's Khoomeizhi of Tuva

A soloist of the Alash ensemble, 23-year-old Bady-Dorzhu Ondar, has been awarded the title People’s Khoomeizhi of Tuva. Sholban Kara-ool, head of the Republic of Tuva, made the announcement on the 15th anniversary of the young throat singer’s professional debut. Bady-Dorzhu Ondar’s career started early. At the age of eight, the young throat singer began to perform with his teacher, the well known khoomeizhi Kongar-ool Ondar. The teacher and student were guests on one of the most highly rated American talk shows, the David Letterman Show. Later, 9-year-old Bady-Dorzhu Ondar performed Tuvan throat singing on another popular talk show, hosted by the comic TV personality Chevy Chase.

Bady-Dorzhu Ondar was born in the village of Iyme. In May 2006, he was awarded Best in Competition among xoomei performers on the 85th birthday of the famous throat singer Maxim Dakpai. He was given a horse as grand prize. In July 2005, Bady-Dorzhu Ondar won the Best Vocals category at the Ustuu-Huree Festival, and in September 2005 he was given a special award at the 4th All-Russia Festival of Folk Orchestras, dedicated to Kalinin and held at the Saratov Folk Arts Center.
Alash and Bady-Dorzhy Ondar will be touring the U.S. in the coming year from January 5 through February 2.
