Alash Ensemble, The Music of Tuva
Wednesday 1/23
4-5:30pm
Williams Hall
Free

NEC's Intercultural Institute presents the Alash Ensemble. This Throat
Singing quartet formed in 1999, is one of the most adventurous groups
driving the revival of Central Asian traditions since the end of the
Soviet era. The traditional techniques they learned as students of
revered Tuvan masters like Kongar-ool Ondar combine with influences
from elsewhere in Asia and the West to create beautiful vocal and
instrumental combinations which are contemporary, but distinctly Tuvan.
