Tuvan throat singing is 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. They tour professionally, sharing their culture with westerners. We are very lucky to have had them perform at Claxton.
Both during the performance and in classroom discussion prior to it, students learned about a different part of the world with different music, traditions, and religious beliefs. Attending the performance helped make them truly world scholars.
