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.

It is a known fact that some of the best throat singers in the world hail from Tuva and a few of them are members of Chirgilchin.
Take Igor Koshkendey. He has twice won the Tuvan International Throat Singing competition, winning in all of the six styles of throat singing.

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.

Harmonica Player had them Rocking

The Stan Rogers Folk Festival has come and gone for another year and by all accounts it was a successful one. I heard great music, met great people and stayed (reasonably) dry. One of the big stories of the festival was the weather that stayed rain and fog free until late Sunday afternoon. Even then, it was only a fairly brief set of showers, nothing compared to the heavy rain they had leading up to the weekend.

The sky was clear and the “blue” moon was out all three nights.

Alash to Perform Tonight at Western Connecticut State University

Alash! Throat Singers of Tuva will perform tonight at Western Connecticut State University.
An award-winning ensemble of four young men from Tuva, bordering Outer Mongolia, Alash! employs the traditional technique of throat singing, also called xoomei, which allows an individual performer to sing more than one note at a time. In traditional Tuvan music, the singers often use their voices and instruments to create the sounds of bird whistles, bubbling streams, cantering horses and howling wolves, producing a musical portrait of the forested taiga and windswept steppes of their homeland.
