Alash Ensemble
Wednesday, November 5
8  - 10 p.m.
The Rotunda, 4014 Walnut Street

Looking for a new global experience? The Rotunda is be hosting ALASH, a group of Tuvan throat-singers. Tuva sits on the southern edge of Siberia, above Mongolia, and this style of singing is influenced by both Chinese and Mongolian cultures. Tuvan throat-singers can sing multiple pitches simultaneously and have been described by Newsweek as "a human bagpipe -- a person who could sing a sustained low note while humming an eerie, whistle-like melody. For good measure, toss in a thrumming rhythm similar to that of a jaw harp, but produced vocally-by the same person, at the same time."
The event is free; however a donation of $5 is requested to help cover the costs of producing the show.
