Performance: Alash Ensemble - Tuvan Throat Singers and Musicians

The tiny republic of Tuva is a giant when it comes to mastery of the human voice. The ancient tradition of throat singing (xoomei in Tuvan) developed among the nomadic herdsmen of Central Asia. Passed down through the generations, but largely unheard by the outside world, xoomei is now the subject of international fascination and has become Tuva's best known export.

Por-Bazhyn Exhibition to Open in Moscow

Exhibition devoted to the Por-Bazhyn fortress in Tuva in the south of Siberia, in close vicinity of the Russian-Mongolian border, on the island, situated on a high–mountain lake, will open in the State East Museum in Moscow on November 7 and will close on 25. This summer a large scale expedition excavated the remnants of the Por-Bazhyn Fortress that was built in the middle of the 8th century. Translated from the Tuvin language Por–Bazhin means an “earthenware house”. The expedition’s leader Professor Viktor Solovyov believes that it was a “summer residence' of the Uyghur Kagan. Most of its facilities were not inhabited rooms as they had a through passage. A facility in Tuva is a monument with complex architecture: there’s a labyrinth of buildings inside a regular rectangle.

Russia Close-up: Tuvans Master Sounds of nature

It largely remains a mystery how a human voice can produce several pitches at once, but for Tuvans the art of throat singing comes naturally, picked up like a language. This vocal ability is believed to have developed from people trying to communicate with nature by mimicking its sounds.

The Republic of Tuva, at the geographical centre of Asia, is one of Russia's most isolated regions nestling on the border with Mongolia.

Tuvans believe that everything surrounding them – not only animals but rivers, trees and stones – is inhabited by spirits. And by learning their language, a human can capture the power of nature.
