Bio

Throat-singing is an extraordinary vocal form in which one singer produces two or more voices simultaneously, harmonizing one with another to create richly layered melodies which evoke central Asian steppes and nomadic life. This music is truly astonishing, magical, and beautiful. Atmospheric and mesmeric, it is almost too difficult to describe in words and must be heard to be believed – the sounds are produced by resonating low sounds in the throat while harmonizing with middle and high flute-like overtones.
This ancient tradition is kept alive and kicking in just a few countries across Central Asia and south of Siberia. The highest developed forms of throat-singing come from Tuva and the members of Chirgilchin are among the best and most accomplished throat-singers in all of Tuva.
