On Wednesday, October 11th, the award-winning Alash Ensemble performed for Brown students as part of the Creative Arts and Sciences concert series. Alash Ensemble is a trio of master throat singers that introduced students to the inspiring art of Tuvan throat singing as well as traditional Tuvan instruments, culture, and way of life. They created an informal and lively atmosphere in which students learned about a rich cultural heritage that is virtually unknown in the West. The program was a mix of music, folk tales, history, and culture–equal parts music and talk. To learn more about this fascinating musical tradition, visit http://www.alashensemble.com/index.html
