There’s no primer that can prepare you for a performance by Huun Huur Tu’s. The Tuvan folk quartet has been cultivating its rich musical reach to include not only the hypnotic timbre of throat singing, but also a dazzling rhythmic approach that includes Western instruments like guitar, and native Tuvan instrumentation in the form of igil, khomus, doshpuluur, and dünggür that contributes to their singular aural imprint. The group has undergone many lineup changes over the years and has released nine albums (six of which are live recordings, if that’s any indication of how powerful they are on stage), in addition to countless collaborative releases. Just go and thank us later.
