Huun Huur Tu

“A musical marvel.”—New York Times
From the independent republic of Tuva, bordering Mongolia, Huun Huur Tu perform an ear-twisting vocal technique called Khöömei. In this style, a single vocalist produces two or three notes simultaneously, often a low drone along with a high-pitched whistle. Accompanied by traditional string and percussion instruments, the four-member ensemble sings rhythmic songs that capture the magic of the Siberian steppe.
