A Tale of Three Festivals

Joe Boyd

… In early July, I set off for Russia and the Wild East. Moscow has become the world’s most expensive city and the changes since my first visit in 1990 are astounding. Muscovites have made the transition from comrades to consumers with ease; they stride in and out of expensive shops with the same strut that the Russian army showed invading Georgia! (OK, that’s a bit of a stretch, but it is hard not to notice today’s Putin-esque confidence in contrast to the ashamed insecurity of the Yeltsin era.)


Throat singing nomads tour Alaska

Quartet to perform in Juneau on Friday

Posted: Thursday, November 14, 2002


Like a nomadic sheep herder wandering the countryside, the throat-singing quartet Huun-Huur-Tu is traveling throughout the United States on a tour that ends in Alaska, including a show Friday, Nov. 15, in Juneau.

Originating out of Tuva, a Central Asian region nestled between Mongolia and Siberia, the heritage of "xoomei," or throat singing, is one of Asia's oldest oral traditions, where a single vocalist produces two distinct notes.


Deep from the throats of Mongolia

By BBC Correspondent Mark Coles:

It may sound like an advert for an antisceptic throat wash, the vocal equivalent of the Australian didgeridoo or the sort of sound you make first thing in the morning after a heavy night of alcohol and cigarettes.
