On Tuesday, November 5, 2013, the Program in Scripture and the Arts will be hosting the Alash Ensemble, internationally acclaimed masters of Tuvan throat singing. Hailing from the Tuva Republic in Siberia Russia, the ensemble will hold a student workshop at 1 pm showcasing this remarkable technique for singing multiple pitches at the same time. This is a unique chance for students to learn about traditional forms and techniques of the ancient art of Tuvan throat singing from a world-famous musical ensemble. Later in the evening, at 5:30, the ensemble will also hold a performance open to the BU community which will be followed by a Q+A session that will focus on possible intersections between Tuvan throat singing and Shamanism.
