About The Event

"It is unfamiliar yet very accessible, an otherworldly but deeply spiritual music that is rooted in the sounds of nature."-Chicago Tribune

The over-tone singing of these remarkable musicians is unlike anything you have heard. It is at once spine-tinglingly beautiful, haunting, and hypnotic, taking their audiences to a mind boggling musical landscape. Performing in nearly every European country and all over North America, Huun Huur Tu has emerged as the leading international representative of the outstanding musical culture of Tuva, a South Siberian Turkic people, who uphold one of the world's oldest forms of music-making.
