Many people discovered the strange Central Asian magic of throat singing via Huun-Huur Tu. It's not confined to Tuva, but that's the home of these guys, one they mix with traditional instruments. In their now-lengthy career, they've tried many things (their last album was mixed with ambient electronica) but this time they're very much back to their roots, and it serves them well. Although best known for their throat singing, which does feature on several cuts here including the short but eerily beautiful "Prayer," it's only one weapon in their arsenal.
Label: World Village. You can call it stately, you can call it otherworldly - Huun Huur Tu's music is all of those things. This music is so of its place, you have to transport yourself a bit to understand it. It is not the soundtrack of 21st-century America. But therein lies its strength: it taps into old emotions that have been nearly elided out of much modern living
Exclusively for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). With the same innovative spirit of their debut recording in 1993, after years of various musical explorations and interactions, Huun Huur Tu have given us a return-to-roots album. Some familiar tunes come, but they are more mature, well-studied in their performance. The beautiful pieces are presented slower, softer, and rounded in tone. We thought we knew this pioneering group from Tuva, but this special album takes us deeper into the grasslands to encounter the spirit of the people, the place, and the herd. Examples of great harmonic throat-singing, vocalise are included, and these are among.
We know on an intellectual level how far removed our modern Western lifestyle is from the traditions of the ancients, but it takes an album such as this to bring it home on an emotional level. At times joyous, at times sorrowful, it is an epic journey into the untamed spirit of the Tuvan people, indigenous to the high pastures of the Altai mountains in south central Siberia. With rhythms reminiscent of galloping horses, and the famous throatsinging forming a deep and resonant backdrop without being allowed to overly dominate, we gain a keen insight into a vibrant, rich and profound culture
