Back in February, lousy weather caused us to cancel the much-anticipated return of the amazing Tuvan throat singers of Huun Huur Tu. Happily, we were able to reschedule at a time when the weather is much less likely to be an issue: Tuesday, October 4. They will be in the intimate Boll Theatre on the University of Dayton campus.
Tuvan throat singing is truly one of the most amazing things I’ve ever heard. The range of sounds they’re able to make with their voices is mind-boggling. The last time they were in Dayton, they told the Standing Room Only crowd that the music originated from Tuvan reindeer herders who used it to give each other directions. They sang the landscape to each other! Fascinating. But enough superlatives from me. Here are some YouTube videos that will show you what I mean better than my words can.
