Huun-Huur-Tu will have a concert at “Shanghai World Music Festival” 15October,2014

 

Call for performers/performing groups in the Shanghai World Music Festival 2014.

The Shanghai World Music Festival 2014 will be held in October 2014. All performers and performing groups specializing in World Music, Folk Music or Ethnic Music are welcome to submit a proposal to perform in this festival. Interested parties please contact the Shanghai World Music Festival organizing committee at hm@hmculture.com or lijiang@hmculture.com. Do give us a biography of yourself or your group, give us your contact, let us know what you do, as well as what items you would like to perform.

World music is an art that transcends peoples and cultures. It is formed outside the Western Classical tradition; from the essence of the various musics around the world, forged from the spirit of traditional music, the context of the music of the folk, and the zeitgeist of modern music and musical creativity. It blends tradition and composition from the various races and creeds around the world, and is an artistic microcosm, which celebrates the diversity we have in our world. It also brings together the various intangible cultural heritage items of different parts of the world and introduces them to an audience that would not otherwise know them.
In the West, World music has already had a wide outreach, not including a myriad of audiences, but also the advocacy of UNESCO through its listing of some performance traditions as Intangible Cultural Heritage items. Hence there are frequent and regular events featuring world music; recordings are also easily available.
World music can be said to be the genre best suited for China to show its uniqueness to the world, yet accept the challenges of globalisation. In the words of Zhang Pei-ren, the godfather of Taiwanese rock music, “World music can rock the audience beyond their wildest imagination, hence we must greatly promote it!”

The world-class khoomei group who links prairie and soul: Huun-Huur-Tu

Huun-Huur-Tu is the premier Tuvan musical group and the world’s top throat-singing ensemble. Huun-Huur-Tu is described as the most natural sound to the deep soul. Huun-Huur-Tu has cooperated with world-class musicians like Frank Zappa and Ry Cooder. Huun-Huur-Tu has successfully toured all over the world since it was created 20 years ago.

Huun-Huur-Tu means the vertical separation of light rays that you often see out on the grasslands just after sunrise or just before sunset, which matches very well with the spirit of the group. As early as 1993, Huun-Huur-Tu toured in the US, causing an upsurge of khoomei there. In 1999, Huun-Huur-Tu cooperated with some scholars of ethnic anthropology including Michael Edgerton and Ted Levin. Their cooperation gave birth to some important works of Central Asian ethnology. Thanks to the efforts of these musicians and scholars, “khoomei center” was founded in America and related organizations have been founded in Europe to protect khoomei.

Huun-Huur-Tu will have a concert at PLATONOV VORONEZH FESTIVAL on 12june

Huun-Huur-Tu

Huun-Huur-Tu,Russia
Tuvan throat singing ‘xoomei’
Philharmonic Hall

International Platonov Arts Festival, named after the greatest Russian writer of the twentieth century Andrey Platonov, has been held in Voronezh since June 2011. Created under the direct patronage of the Governor of Voronezh Region Alexey Gordeev, the festival has become the major cultural project in the region and one of the dynamically developing multidiscipline festivals in Russia. It provides a unique opportunity to residents of Voronezh and of the surrounding areas to enjoy the outstanding creative achievements in various art forms. It is a bright new stage in the development of culture of Voronezh region, which is intended to approve Voronezh as one of the leading centers of the Russian culture.

On the official Day of Russia the most famous internationally acknowledged ethno-music band of the former Soviet Union, throat singers of Tuva, perform in Voronezh.
The republic Tuva as a part of Russian Federation is located in southern Siberia and borders on Altai and Mongolia, Forests, mountains, and steppe make up a large part of the geography.
The members of Huun-Huur-Tu and other Tuvan throat singers can produce more than one pitch simultaneously while singing. No one in the rest of the world is entirely sure how they do it, but most Tuvans learn the skill as children. It involves singing one tone normally while amplifying the tone’s harmonics—the quieter, higher tones that are part of any sounding pitch (heard, for example, when the lip of a bottle is blown hard)—with manipulations of the larynx, lips, tongue, jaw, and soft palate.
Huun-Huur-Tu’s members can even produce short melodies in one “voice” along with single notes.
The Tuvan acoustic quartet Huun Huur Tu proves that Tuvan music can take plenty of intelligent innovation. Using traditional instruments and drawing subtly on 20th-century composers, funky rhythms, and the palette of electronica, Huun Huur Tu transform ancient songs into complex acoustic compositions.
Since 1993 the group made repeated tours of the United States and also performed in Europe, Japan, and (in 1999) Australia. 2000 the band performed life in the opening and closing of the BBC Life Music festival. 2012 the band was nominated to the BBC World Music Award.

“A single voice can sound like three, and the overlapping tones are almost deceptive in their depth and complexity, creating the illusion that there is actually more going on than first meets the ear. This is not particularly uptempo music, but it is intensely spiritual.”
THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE
“The Tuvans will ride into your brain and leave hoofprints up and down your spine.”
THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN
“A rustic joyousness and unadulterated expressiveness come out of these musicians.”
JAZZ TIMES
“The members of Huun-Huur-Tu are perhaps the best known practitioners (of throat singing) and accompany themselves on all manner of strange and wonderful instruments… The resulting sound is as compelling as a wild gallop across the steppes.”
THE OREGONIAN (Portland)

Lyrics in English
Three of us, four of us,
But we’re strong as thirty.
What is thirty against us?!
They won’t hold against the three of us.

Four of us, five of us,
But we’re strong as forty.
What is forty against us?!
They won’t hold up against the four of us.

Five of us, six of us,
But we’re strong as fifty.
What is fifty against us?!
They won’t hold up against the five of us.

Six of us, Seven of us,
But we’re strong as sixty.
What is sixty against us?!
They won’t hold up against the six of us.

Huun-Huur-Tu (A-Shoo-De-Ke-Yo Lyrics in English)

When my trotting dun is trotting
the fog on the ground clears up
When the eloquent girl manifests herself
The Seven Stars conjoin

My sweetheart’s two eyes
are like the stars that rise late
Her coarse braid
is like the cedar of my taiga pasture

When my ambling dun is ambling
the first fog clears up
When my witty dear manifests herself
The first stars conjoin

Its children are bold,
cheerful and merry, deng-deng
Its peoples are free
it is our Tuva, deng-deng

My young beloved’s two eyes
are like the stars that shine in the evening
Her braid born in autumn
is like some land’s cedar
