This Wednesday, March 31, members of the award-winning singing group Alash will be performing a Brown Bag concert in Owen Arts Center.

In this performance, called Expanding Your Horizons, members will show off their mastery of the Tuvan style of singing. Tuvian throat-singing can be described as an ancient Central Asian musical tradition.

What’s unique about this type of singing is the way the individual vocalists sing multiple pitches at the same time creating sounds of the natural world like birds or streams.

Along with the vocalists, the Brown Bag performance will be accompanied by traditional Tuvan instruments.

Alash is deeply committed to the music and culture of Tuva, but they also mix western elements into their performances. This creates a personal style that is both fresh and cultural at the same time.

This free perfromance will be held at noon. For more information, click here.
