Tuvan throat singing is a type of vocalization which combines multiple pitches simultaneously. The Alash trio is masterful in this ancient art from Tuva, a Russian region south of Siberia. Using traditional Tuvan musical instruments, the group has performed with the cosmic vision of Sun Ra’s Arkestra and earned a Grammy for its collaboration with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. On Thursday, Alash brings its vocal and instrumental talents to the ArtsCenter.
