Huun-Huur-Tu

The world-class khoomei group who links prairie and soul: Huun-Huur-Tu
 
Huun-Huur-Tu is the premier Tuvan musical group and the world's top throat-singing ensemble. Huun-Huur-Tu is described as the most natural sound to the deep soul. Huun-Huur-Tu has cooperated with world-class musicians like Frank Zappa and Ry Cooder. Huun-Huur-Tu has successfully toured all over the world since it was created 20 years ago.
 
Huun-Huur-Tu means the vertical separation of light rays that you often see out on the grasslands just after sunrise or just before sunset, which matches very well with the spirit of the group. As early as 1993, Huun-Huur-Tu toured in the US, causing an upsurge of khoomei there. In 1999, Huun-Huur-Tu cooperated with some scholars of ethnic anthropology including Michael Edgerton and Ted Levin. Their cooperation gave birth to some important works of Central Asian ethnology. Thanks to the efforts of these musicians and scholars, “khoomei center” was founded in America and related organizations have been founded in Europe to protect khoomei.
