Vibrant voices

If you like the sound of flute, it’s like flute but with your body,” says Sayan Bapa, a member of the Tuvan folk ensemble Huun-Huur-Tu, when Feedback asks him how he would describe Tuvan overtone singing for someone who has never heard it. We think that’s an apt description for the style, which involves creating multiple notes at once by manipulating the mouth, throat and vocal chords. You can’t really grasp what it really sounds like without hearing it for yourself, though. We remember our first experience: a rumbling, guttural Hhhhhhhmmmmmmmeeerrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaahhhhh emanated from our roommate’s bedroom, where he was teaching himself the vocal technique, also called throat singing, from resources on the Internet.

Tuva Begins the Year of Khoomei

In Tuva a gala-concert in the Muzdramteatr (Music-Drama Theater) officially opened February 13 the Year of Khoomei. Khoomei is a unique vocal phenomenon, whereby in the performer's throat sounds of different pitches are created simultaneously. In effect, the person becomes like an orchestra. Today khoomei became the worldwide calling card of Tuva. In the summer of 2007 the art of Tuvan throat singing enraptured Vladimir Putin and his guest Albert II, Prince of Monaco.

The Call of Russia's Steppes Heard in Tuva's Folk Music

Otherworldly is an apt word to describe Tuvan throat-singing. On Tuesday at the Rotunda, as the three members of Tuva's Alash gave deep voice to the first of a dozen numbers, listeners having their first live encounter with the Central Asian folk genre could be identified by their startled looks. Developed over centuries among the semi-nomadic herdsmen of Tuva, where they could sing to each other over long distances, the eerie vocalizations have long been a national passion in the land bordering southern Siberia.

Leading and Being Guided

Ask any Tuvan today, what the mysterious expression “Huun-Huurtu” means, and he’ll answer “sun propeller” or “sun”. But 15 years ago, when the ethno-group of this name was being born, such a concept was not known in Tuva at all. Not in normal, vernacular language. The musicians themselves explain it this way: Huun-Huurtu is a natural effect that appears when the sun is shining through trees or clouds. Huun-Huurtu is “prosvet”. (Transl. note: can be translated as enlightenment, culture, education, or simply light shining through. HJ.) And that is very symbolic.

Tuvan Fusion

Photo by Serena StuckeTapping out a lively beat, the Tuvan drummer set the pace. A classical string quartet joined in. Igils, traditional Tuvan instruments, rounded out the string section. As the Tuvan musicians began to sing, each producing multiple tones, a rich, full sound enveloped the room. A much bigger sound than one would expect from only seven musicians, it was the pièce de résistance of “Unexpected Voices,” a concert featuring the Tuvan ensemble Alash and a classical string quartet at The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (CMS) on January 11, 2008.
