Captivating music comes to Vermont
BRATTLEBORO- The central Asian republic of Tuva is home to one of the world’s most remarkable indigenous musical traditions. Historically nomadic herdsmen engage in a style of throat singing whereby individual singers produce two or more notes simultaneously, often a low drone and a high-pitched melody or other-worldly vocal effects not found in Western music.
The Brattleboro Museum and Art Center brings this captivating music to Vermont on Friday, August 17, at 8 pm, when the Alash Ensemble, a trio of Tuvan throat singers, performs in the museum’s Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason Gallery.
Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, and are available at www.brattleboromuseum.org or by calling (802) 257-0124, ext.101.
