7:00-8:00PM; Reception, 6:30PM
Alash are masters of Tuvan throat singing, a remarkable technique for singing multiple pitches at the same time. Masters of traditional Tuvan instruments as well as the art of throat singing, Alash are deeply committed to traditional Tuvan music and culture. At the same time, they are fans of western music. Believing that traditional music must constantly evolve, the musicians subtly infuse their songs with western elements, creating their own unique style that is fresh and new, yet true to their Tuvan musical heritage. Join Alash as they perform at International House.
This event is free and open to the public, with suggested donations of $20 accepted at door. Reception begins at 6:30.
