Tuvan Throat Singers
Williams College Department of Music presents Alash Ensemble in the Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall at 8 on Monday, November 4. This free event is open to the public. Alash Ensemble is comprised of masters of Tuvan throat singing, a remarkable technique for singing multiple pitches at the same time. In addition to their vocal mastery the ensemble members also play traditional Tuvan instruments, and subtly infuse their songs with western elements, creating a unique style.
Alash Ensemble appears as part of the Ernest Brown World Music Series that brings musicians from across the globe to share their musical talents with the community. The series is named for Professor Emeritus Ernest D. Brown, who taught at Williams from 1988 to 2011. Visit music.williams.edu for information, or call the concert hotline at 413-597-3146.
