Alash Ensemble Tuvan Throat Singers, March 27 at Spirit Lounge.


The Alash Ensemble Tuvan Throat Singers will perform in Pittsburgh on March 27.
Alash are masters of Tuvan throat singing (xöömei), a remarkable technique for singing multiple pitches at the same time. What distinguishes this gifted trio from earlier generations of Tuvan throat singers is the subtle infusion of modern influences into their traditional music. One can find complex harmonies, western instruments, and contemporary song forms in Alash’s music, but its overall sound and spirit remain decidedly Tuvan.
Tickets for the show at Spirit in Lawrenceville (map) are now available online.
