Tuvan Throat Singers

THROAT SİNGİNG

Huun-Huur-Tu – Folk music groups

Huun-Huur-Tu (Tuvan: Хүн Хүртү Khün Khürtü, Russian: Хуун-Хуур-Ту) is a music group from Tuva, a Russian Federation republic situated on the Mongolian border.
The most distinctive characteristic of Huun Huur Tu’s music is throat singing, in which the singers sing both the note (drone) and the drone’s overtone(s), thus producing two or three notes simultaneously. The overtone may sound like a flute, whistle or bird, but is actually solely a product of the human voice.
The group primarily uses native Tuvan instruments such as the igil, khomus (Tuvan jaw harp), doshpuluur, and dünggür (shaman drum). However, in recent years, the group has begun to selectively incorporate western instruments, such as the guitar. While the thrust of Huun Huur Tu’s music is fundamentally indigenous Tuvan folk music, they also experiment with incorporating not only Western instruments, but electronic music as well.

Huun-Huur-Tu (Hün Hürtü)

GÜNIŞIĞI

Huun-Huur-Tu (Tuvaca: Хүн Хүртү Khün Khürtü) Rusya Federasyonu’nun Moğolistan ile arasındaki Türk soylu Tuva bölgesinden çıkmış bir müzik topluluğudur.
Müziklerinin ayırt edici özelliklerinden biri boğaz vokalidir. Grup ayrıca igil (egil, kıl-kopuz da denilir), kopuz, doşpuluur (dopşulduur, topşuluur da denilir), tungur (şaman davulu, tıngırtı) gibi enstrümanları kullanmalarıyla ünlüdür. 1992’de Kungurtuk adıyla kurulan grubun ilk üyeleri Kaygal-ool Hovalıg, Alexander Bapa, Sayan Bapa ve Albert Kuvezin’di. Bir süre sonra Hün Hür-Tü (kün kürtü, gün gürtü , güneş ışınları) adını alan grubun şarkılarının çoğu step yaşantısını yansıtan geleneksel Tuva ezgilerinden oluşmaktadır.
