Tyva Kyzy (Daughters of Tuva) is recognized as first and, to date, the only group of women performing throat-sining in Central-Asia. Khöömei, or throat-singing in Tuvan, still remains a domain of male singers. Members of the group also command a wide spectre of female vocal and instrumental styles of Tuva, the land of the eagle. Instruments include chadagan (zither), byzaanchy, igil (both bow instruments) and toshpuluur (lute).
Fragment of their concert in Tropentheater in Amsterdam. Two songs of Tyva Kyzy, starting off the concert. “Сеткилимден сергек ыр-дыр (Cheerful Song of My Soul)”/ “Хомузум (My mouth-harp)”. Filmed by the Dutch production company Booz during the group’s tour in Europe in February 2012.
