Alash Ensemble

October 23, 7:00 PM at Ozarka College Mountain View
The members of Alash are master throat singers from Tuva, a tiny republic in Siberia, located at the geographical center of the Eurasian continent. The ancient art of throat singing, by which a single singer produces multiple notes simultaneously, developed among the nomadic herdsmen of the region. Alash are virtuosi of this amazing vocal technique who accompany themselves brilliantly on a variety of fascinating instruments from their homeland.

In addition to performing traditional music, they have collaborated with such diverse groups as the bluegrass/fusion/jazz band Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, the jazz ensemble Sun Ra Arkestra, and the classical Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s Student Producers Program.  Alash Ensemble tours extensively in Europe, Russia, and America.  They performed at Carnegie Hall in 2012.
