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.

The name itself spells legend: Kevin Costner & his Modern West Quintet touring Europe – and getting interested in Tuvan music and folklore

Photo by Polodrome (Juchen)Everyone in Europe and in almost all other parts of the world knows Kevin Costner, one of the few American top movie stars who is known to be interested not only in the American way of life but is equally attracted to foreign cultures and peoples. He had proven this in producing in 1994 an ethnologically valuable documentary about Rapa-Nui, a small volcanic island in the southern Pacific Ocean and the most eastern Polynesian settlement, which had been annexed by Chile in 1888 and named Isla de Pascua, Easter Island. Famous for its “moais”, monumental statues of volcanic rock and other natural materials depicting humans, such as the most famous seven of them called Ahu Akivi. Rapa-Nui is also famous for its unique hieroglyphic letters, in part deciphered by German ethnologist Thomas Barthel.
