Huun Huur Tu

Gugak(Korean traditional music)

Huun-Huur-Tu, throat singers from Tuva are Sayan Bapa, Kaigal-ool Khovalyg, Anatoly Kuular, and Alexey Saryglar. Presenting their wonderfully tuneful songs, using instruments (igil, byzaanchi) reminiscent of banjo and fiddle and a combination of low growling and highpitched harmonics, the khomuz and dazhaanning khavy make these songs jawdropping.

The Chicago Tribune said “It is unfamiliar yet very accessible, an other worldly but deeply spiritual music that is rooted in the sounds of nature.”

"A rustic joyousness and unadulterated expressiveness come out of these musicians."
- JAZZ TIMES

"The Tuvans will ride into your brain and leave hoofprints up and down your spine."
- THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN

"Imagine cool, fresh air, high altitudes, the wild open spaces of the steppes, rushing rivers, singing birds, galloping horses, yurts, and a culture that combines Buddhism with shamanism, and then imagine that you hear the sounds of all these elements in the music. With a beat. That's what it sounds like."
- UNION NEWS, (Springfield, Mass.)

Nothing in music circles has quite marvelled, fascinated, and entranced the ears of musicians and listeners like the sound of Tuvan throat-singing, brought to the global stage by the virtuosic quartet Huun-Huur-Tu. It is a sound that is virtually impossible to describe, at once primordial, spine-tingling, and stunningly beautiful. - THE GEORGIA STRAIGHT
