About: Alash are masters of Tuvan throat singing, a technique for singing multiple pitches at once. This unique singing technique includes a variety of styles, each associated with a different sound in nature, with the more complex styles creating rhythms or quickly changing harmonics to imitate the sounds of bubbling water or trotting horses. Accompanied by string and wind instruments designed and played to produce complex sonorities, Tuvan throat singers are regarded for their mastery of the human voice. This gifted trio stands out from their forerunners in their subtle infusion of modern influences into traditional Tuvan music. Alash’s music remains decidedly Tuvan in overall sound and spirit, but the ensemble incorporates complex harmonies, western instruments, and contemporary song forms, ever so slightly deviating from the norm. In spite of borrowing certain Western trends, Alash has never sacrificed the integrity of their own Tuvan heritage. Located at the southern edge of Siberia, the nomadic herdsmen of Tuva retain a close spiritual relationship with nature and that kinship continues to have a resounding impact on the music and musicians who hail from this incredible country on the opposite side of the globe.
