Tuvan Throat Singing | Alash | TEDxBaltimore

1,572,571 viewsFeb 2, 201627K430ShareSaveTEDx Talks 33M subscribers Imagine a human bagpipe-a person who could sing a sustained low note while humming an eerie, whistle-like melody. For good measure, toss in a thrumming rhythm similar to that of a jaw harp, but produced vocally-by the same person, at the same time. Recorded at TEDxBaltimore January 2016. Alash are masters of Tuvan throat singing, a remarkable technique for singing multiple pitches at the same time. Masters of traditional Tuvan instruments as well as the art of throat singing, Alash are deeply committed to traditional Tuvan music and culture. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

154,315 viewsSep 1, 20175.1K34ShareSaveSmithsonian Folkways 41.1K subscribers In this video, Tuvan ensemble Alash demonstrate various traditional throat singing styles that they use in their music. ‘Achai’ is available August 25, 2017 on CD and Digital. Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: http://www.folkways.si.edu/alash/achai Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/1NQXkv… iTunes: https://music.apple.com/us/album/acha… Achai, the Tuvan word for father, describes a deep paternal participation in the upbringing and growth of a new generation. It is also a fitting title for Alash’s new album to honor Kongar-ool Ondar, who served not only as a musical father for the ensemble, but also for an entire generation of Tuvan musicians. As Ondar shared memory and tradition, so too does Alash with spirited performances and forward-thinking collaborations. In the group’s first studio album for Smithsonian Folkways, Achai beautifully illustrates the adaptability of Tuvan music—organically created and deeply rooted, yet still interconnected with the sound world of the 21st century. Featuring master beatboxer Shodekeh, alongside time-honored Tuvan throat-singing styles, the album demonstrates how members of Alash have dedicated their lives to performing, preserving, developing, and growing the Tuvan tradition. They are worthy bearers of the culture of their fathers and sons.

English translation (not perfect): “To do exercises, you have to use the constricted voice of the “khoomii” (throat singing). We use the vowels A, E, I, O, U, Ü to perform the exercises. Let me demonstrate it for you. (1st singing) After this we connect it to the khoomii (tongue). (2nd singing) For beginners, you have to know the difference between making a sound from high and lower in the throat. Let me show you the one with making a sound from low. (3rd singing) Now you can connect it with your nasal pasages (open your sinus). (4th singing) There’s also constricting high in the throat way from near and make sounds only with the voice. (5th singing) There’s also sounding from afar. (6th singing) Aside from this, there’s also a style called “harhiraa”, or root constriction, here’s how it sounds (7th singing) Then you can bring the constriction up, (8th singing) These are the types of constriction you have to learn to do khoomii.” Photos taken from these youtube-videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaZ_JH…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkgKf_…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVRajB… 1st Audio-track is from the CD called Mongolia Traditional Music by UNESCO (1995).
