Alash Ensemble-Syyn Miygak

ALASH ENSEMBLE is a quartet of master throat singers  from Tuva, a tiny republic in the heart of Central Asia.This Ancient art developed among their ancient ancestors the nomadic herdsman of their region. While listening to Alash it is almost like they are using vocoders and vocal effects but it is all natural, and you realize that this sound was created long before the electonic bands of the 1980′s were doing it.   Alash carries on the tradition of the technique but expanding the style to include more western influences. They have quoted Jimi Hendix as an influence, and have also collaborated with Sun Ra Arkestra and Béla Fleck.
