    HUUN HUUR TU – Tuvan Throat-Singers

    Friday, Sept. 23

    Vancouver Playhouse
    600 Hamilton St.

    Beginning over seventeen years ago, Huun Huur Tu has almost single-handedly introduced the outside world to the boundless wealth of Tuvan traditions. The whistling of the high-mountain wind forms eerie overtones and postmodern statement. The repeated thrum of a string against wood and hide turns into a meditative, evocative figure straight from the avant garde.
