From Tuva, a Russian republic in southern Siberia, Tyva Kyzy (“Daughters of Tuva”) is literally a one-of-a-kind ensemble. They are the first and only women’s group in Tuva that performs all styles of Tuvan throat-singing. Customarily, women from this region have been prohibited from performing this form of multi-toned harmonic singing, but Tyva Kyzy breaks that taboo and publicly performs this ancient art of singing in their own unique “feminine” style. They accompany themselves on a range of folk instruments of their own making.
$15.00 in Advance, $20.00 at the Door, 12 & Under Free. Purchase tickets here.
