The Treasury of the Senses (Part I)

Experience of nomadic life

The map of the Todzha district of Republic Tuva was spread out over the entire wall of the socio-economic department of the administration. It did not show highways or roads for cars, none with covered tops neither without it. Only four canvas tents with chimney pipes of “burzhuyka” stoves sticking out remind us that people live here. Everything else is a painting without artefacts. 19th century ethnographers used to describe the common nomad grounds of several families, forming a single camp – aal – as a nomadic neighbor community. It could consist of relatives, or of people without any blood ties.

1000 Buddhas exhibited in the main temple of Tuva

1000 Buddha statuettes were on exhibit in the prayer hall of the main temple (khuree) of Tuva during the great Buddhist Holy Days. These statuettes were made in Nepal under the supervision of the Nepal lama Tuge Rinpoche. The figurines were made for the “Ustuu-Khuree” monastery which was destroyed in the 30’s of last century. They will be placed in the Upper Chadan khuree after the work on the new temple, which is an exact copy of the destroyed temple, is finished.

Alash Rings in the Holidays as Guest Artists of Béla Fleck & the Flecktones

The Tuvan throat singers Alash are flying to the U.S. from reindeer country to perform “Jingle Bells” and other Yuletide favorites with the legendary American group Béla Fleck & the Flecktones, to promote the Flecktones' Grammy-winning CD Jingle All the Way. This lively and innovative album presents holiday tunes like you’ve never heard them before. The buzzy sounds of throat singing provide a surprise element in several songs, including the traditional Tuvan song “Dyngyldai” ingeniously interwoven with the English Christmas carol “What Child Is This?” (See it on YouTube). By the way, in case you’re wondering, "dyngyldai" is a Tuvan nonsense word that has no translation.
