RADİK TYULYUSH and the project “CHALAMA”

Radik Tyulyush and the project “Chalama”. Chalama means coloured ribbons tied to the branches of the sacred trees and at the sacred places (ovaa) in Tuva. Chalama for the Tuvinians is a prayer, respect to the nature and the ancestors. Music of the Tuvinian people is one of the nomads – the people who closely connected and are in contact with the nature and wildlife. Therefore you can listen to special sounding – imitation of ambient sounds, which are converted into a song. When you listen to Radik’s singing – you can hear the nature, something very natural, consonant with the soul and at the same time harmonizing the inner state, as if it were a mantra. The music of the project is an atmosphere, which can be felt enough only at a live concert, when everybody and everything is “here and now”, when the live music is borning. Sincerity and perfect singing and playing the Tuvinian musical instruments sounds like water in a mountain spring, and everyone is impressed with the performance. Despite the fact that this music is very unusual for the perception of it is fascinating with not only the technique and sounding, but also a special flavor, because in this music you can also hear echoes of the ritual, shamanic singing, but the songs have no religious background. As Radik says, who briefly retells the meaning of each song before the singing, these songs are about love, about the beauty of a girl, about nature, about the styles of throat singing and impetuous running of a horse … Radik Tyulyush sings traditional Tuvinian songs and his own songs, designed to reveal the musical heritage of the Tuvinian people. Despite the presence of modern musical “components”, this music is really popular, almost like in its original form, but not rigid framework. It is free, it is on the brink, keeping the traditions and showing some new sounding like any phenomenon that is constantly evolving with the passage of time, becoming deep and wise. The other participants of “Chalama” project are Sergey Kalachev known as Grebstel (he plays a bass-guitar) and Gennady Lavrentyev (he plays tabla-Tarang and violin). The permanent members of the project create joint truly amazing and fascinating fabric of eternal music. Text: Anna Rzhevina

What is the role of traditional clothing?

THE MYSTERY OF TUVAN KHÖÖMEI
What is the role of traditional clothing?
For outerwear, the Tuvan ton, a robe-like garment made of silk, was traditionally considered to be the most practical and functional. Silk is a very strong and durable material. The tradition of making tons from silk goes back centuries. Belts were usually made of either leather or silk. Silk belts are 5-6 meter-long strips of silk that are wrapped around the waist of ton several times. The method of tying a silk belt helps to prevent injury because it offers additional support when riding on horseback. A similar method is still used to protect the spines of post-operative patients in neurosurgical departments of hospital, but they use a cotton sheet instead of a departments of hospital, but they use a cotton sheet instead of a silk belt. Historically, nomads used a very strong, non-stretchable fabric as a belt or corset. Men most often used red silk, but with the penetration of Buddhism into Tuva, the belt gradually started to “yellow”
Snug-fitting ( but not too tight ) clothing will allow one to work comfortably, to be able concentrate on oneself, and to be able to breathe calmly and in a relaxed fashion using the pectoral muscles. You can see this among most of the professional khöömei masters-Sergei Ondar, Kaigal-ool Khovalyg, Igor Köshkendei, Andrei Mongush, Möngün-ool Ondar, Aldyn-ool Sevek, and others. When they are performing khöömei they close their eyes and joyfully immerse themselves in a creative state of inspiration as their innate natural energy awakens.
 
Consequently, the ethical value of ethnic music does not depend on the musician’s clothing, but rather on this moral make-up. Do not try to dazzle your listeners with the brilliance of your clothing. Good taste is like a good ear for music-you either have it or you don’t. You must respect your audience and show this respect both through your behavior and your dress. Learn how to smile, how to greet people. You have free will; learn how to use it to to change your surroundings. As a creative person you should be confident in your abilities. And you should strive to achieve your goals.
 
To reach the consciousness of your listener with your performance, you must be able to express the best side of your individuality. Learn to serve the art; do not try to make the art serve your own worldly purposes.

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 WITH JAMES CARSON

Hailing from the high pastures of the Altai Mountains in south central Siberia, the Tuvan acoustic quartet Huun Huur Tu’s trademark sound derives from the use of overtone or “throat-singing” techniques which were invented by the nomadic hunter-herders of the Tuvan steppes and mountains. Traditionally, these were largely performed a cappella, but Huun Huur Tu were one of the first groups to combine them with ancient acoustic instruments such as the cello-like two-stringed igil, the four-stringed byzaanchi, the three-stringed doshpuluur and thekhmomuz – a local equivalent of the Jew’s Harp. Using these with percussion and voice, they create eerie harmonics and other worldly noises, even mimicking animals. As they began touring in the West seventeen years ago, Huun Huur Tu almost single-handedly introduced the outside world to the boundless wealth of Tuvan traditions, thanks in great part to their superior musicianship.

Canadian-American pianist James Carson has developed a striking new style of piano music and for the last four years has been directing Cabin Music, a feature film, to share it with the world. While studying at the New England Conservatory, James was struck by a spiritual epiphany which sparked a twelve year search to create and share this music with the world. He subsequently spent two years backpacking from Spain to Japan and then spent five years designing, building, and practicing in a remote strawbale cabin in Northern Alberta. The music result was a new piano technique that is blindingly fast but at the same time meditative and harmonious, similar to the leaves on a tree in the wind. He has since moved to New York and been collaborating with different artists on his film. This concert holds a particular importance to James as he traveled extensively in Tuva during his travels and survived a near-fatal car accident in the Altai Mountains.

Radik Tyulyush

Radik Tyulyush

Huun Huur Tu, Ces 4 chanteurs musiciens dont le nom signifie littéralement « Propulseur de soleil », perpétue les traditions vocales et instrumentales de Touva, petite région basée entre la Russie et la Mongolie. L’ambiance sonore des grandes steppes et des montagnes qui forment le paysage de Touva ont inspiré à ses habitants l’une des plus étonnantes musiques vocales de notre planète. La technique vocale dite « chant de Gorge » ou KHOOMEI permet au chanteur d’imiter ces sons ambiants. Par des mouvements précis des lèvres, de la langue, de la mâchoire, du palais et du larynx, les chanteurs produisent deux à trois notes à la fois laissant surgir des mélodies fascinantes. On y reconnaît le chant des oiseaux, un cheval au galop, le ruissellement de l’eau, le sifflement du vent… Le chant de gorge est intimement lié à des traditions animistes et à des rituels chamaniques.

Radik Tyulyush - US tour, spring 2014

Tuvan singer and musician Radik Tyulyush began his career with the rock (“UER”, from 1993 – present, “Yat-kha”, 2000-2004) but craving for ethnic roots and traditions prevailed and in 2005 together with Carole Pegg in England (University of Cambridge) Radik recorded his debut album “Tuva: Spirits of my Land”, after which he was invited by the world-renowned group “Huun-Huur-Tu” and works with this group so far.
New stage in Radik’s career will be solo album “Chalama” which will be released in late 2012- beginning 2013. “Chalama” – colored ribbons that tie up the branches of the tree in a sacred place called “ovaa” as a sign of reverence for the universe, the grandeur, beauty, wisdom, nature – everything that we are happy to behold around us. Music written by Radik – like ribbons in the branches of the World Tree of Music and Harmony.

Album “Chalama” include Radik’s own compositions and traditional Tuvan songs arranged by him.

ANCESTORS – Radik Tyulyush (Lyrics in Enghish) & Documentary film about Tuva

ANCESTORS

The Ene-Sai (ancient name of the Yene sei River), Sayan(mountains), and Tandim(mountains) are our ancient places.
The soft and soulful “sygyt” and “khöömei” are the ancient song of our people .
The ancestors of our “kargyraa” long ago became like gravestones on the steppe.
But among us are still people who sing kargyraa.
The ancestor of khöömei and sygyt long ago became like gravestones on the steppe.
But our hearts are proud(boil in our chest) that among us are still people who sing khöömei.

Album Review
Many people discovered the strange Central Asian magic of throat singing via Huun-Huur Tu. It’s not confined to Tuva, but that’s the home of these guys, one they mix with traditional instruments. In their now-lengthy career, they’ve tried many things (their last album was mixed with ambient electronica) but this time they’re very much back to their roots, and it serves them well. Although best known for their throat singing, which does feature on several cuts here including the short but eerily beautiful “Prayer,” it’s only one weapon in their arsenal. They’re also very adept musicians on their respective instruments and good singers in every way, and they demonstrate all the facets of their talent. It’s music that can seem alien (especially the throat singing) but there’s a deep beauty to it all. For all that it sounds ancient, inspired by the rhythms of horse’s hooves on the steppes, this is modern music, inspired by the tradition. It’s a wonderful soundscape.

Customer Reviews
Incredible sounds from humans

by WTF!!!!!!!!!
I’ve never realized such singing existed until I came across this band. I drift off into another realm when I listen to them.

collected stories: spirit

Huun-Huur-Tu

A peculiar style of singing is found in the tiny Siberian country of Tuva. Called khoomei, or throat singing, the songs are typically performed by soloists who each specialize in a particular variant of khoomei. The amazing technique of Tuvan throat singing is still a mystery to Western science, but listen closely and you will hear the singers produce up to four notes at once, singing melody and accompaniment simultaneously.

In 1992, Kaigal-ool Khovalyg, Alexander Bapa, his brother Sayan Bapa, and Albert Kuzevin founded the quartet as a means of concentrating on the presentation of traditional songs of their homeland. While they devoted themselves to the preservation of these songs, their concerts demonstrated the significance of combining tradition and innovation. The musicians later decided to rename the ensemble as “Huun-Huur-Tu”-a name that means “Separation of Light Rays on the Prairie.”

Huun-Huur-Tu presents its style of throat singing in the context of wonderfully tuneful songs, employing instruments reminiscent of the banjo and fiddle. The combination of earth-rumbling growling and whistle-like harmonics, along with the ethereal jaw harp and shaman’s drum make these songs both lively and deeply spiritual.

Huun-Huur-Tu has toured extensively in the US, Canada, Europe, Japan, and Australia, and has an international fan base. The group has also collaborated with Frank Zappa, Ry Cooder, The Chieftains, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, the Kronos Quartet, L. Shankar, and the Bulgarian Women’s Choir.

HUUN-HUUR-TU
Archaische Stimmwunder aus Tuva

Sasha Bapa, sein Bruder Sayan und zwei weitere Musiker, Kaigal-ool Khovalyg and Albert Kuvezin gründeten HUUN-HUUR-TU 1992, um sich auf die Präsentation von alten und vergessenen Liedern zu konzentrieren, wie Sasha es ausdrückt.

1993 spielte das Ensemble Huun-Huur-Tu erstmals in Amerika und erzielte binnen kurzer Zeit überwältigende Erfolge. Ihr “Khoomei” oder “Throat singing” – wie die Amerikaner sagen, der Obertongesang ist eine der faszinierendsten Vokaltechniken der Welt. Schnell erreichte das Ensemble einen “Kultstatus” in der neuen Welt, veröffentlichte dort mittlerweile sechs CD’s und erfreut sich weiter wachsender Popularität. Die Kultur der Tuvenen ist der mongolischen verwandt und spiegelt den Respekt vor der Natur wieder.

Huun-Huur-Tu spielte im Amerika u. a. zusammen mit dem Kronos Quartet, Frank Zappa – dem sie das Lied “Ching Söörtükchülerining Yryzy” (Song of the Caravan Drivers) gewidmet haben – , den Chieftains und L. Shankar.

Huun-Huur-Tu Stil
Unüberhörbar gibt es einen rituellen Charakter in dieser Musik, aber alle meditativen Tendenzen tilgt Huun-Huur-Tu durch eine stark rhythmische Ausrichtung. Zutiefst geheimnisvoll bleibt dieser faszinierende Obertongesang, der bis zu drei Melodien gleichzeitig erklingen lassen kann.

Während die Mitglieder von Huun-Huur-Tu sich dem Lernen alter Lieder und Melodien verschrieben haben, zeigen ihre Konzerte die Bedeutung von Tradition und Innovation. So ist es das Anliegen von Huun-Huur-Tu etwas Neues für Tuva: Traditionell wurde tuvenische Musik meist von Solisten vorgetragen und Musiker spezialisierten sich auf ein bestimmtes Genre oder einen Stil. Diese Genres und Stile wiederum haben ihren Ursprung in bestimmten sozialen Anlässen. Huun-Huur-Tu’s eklektische Aufführungen alter Lieder und Melodien dagegen bewegen sich zwischen allen Stühlen tuvenischen Musiklebens. “Wenn eine musikalische Tradition aufhört sich weiterzuentwickeln, ist sie zum Sterben verurteilt.“ Ted Levin

“Wir haben Lieder wiederentdeckt, die niemand mehr singt. Wir lernen von den alten Leuten, spielen sogar die tuvenische Internationale, die in den 30iger Jahren sehr populär war, als Tuva eine selbstständige Republik war (Tanna Tuva genannt). Der Text ist zwar sowjetisch, aber die Melodie kommt von einem tuvenischen Volkslied.” Sasha Bapa

A l’aube et au couchant , il darde de splendides et rasants rayons qui illuminent la terre d’une intense et lumineuse beauté que les tuvas nomment : Huun Huur Tu. C’est le nom que s’est donné le groupe de chanteurs dont les chants gutturaux et diphoniques célèbrent les mystères de leur harmonieuse nature et l’attachement des bergers à leurs vastes prairies. Soutenue par une technique étonnante, la musique traditionnelle des Tuvan est un art très singulier dans son expression, mais aussi un outil qui permet de calmer les animaux, de les domestiquer. Elle sert également d’appeau dans le chasse aux animaux sauvages. Cette musique fait appel à des instruments très singuliers (harpe juive, banjo à trois cordes, tambours de shama, shaker en rotule de mouton ou coccyx de taureau) mais surtout à une technique vocale dit chant de gorge ou Kloonei, qui fait la voix d’un instrument où les sons amplifient de manière surnaturelle les harmoniques en jouant sur la richesse et la diversité des timbres. Virtuoses ambassadeurs d’une culture empreinte de spiritualité, où la nature dialogue avec l’âme, le groupe Huun Huur Tu nous convient à un fabuleux voyage dans les confins du monde et nous offre un prodigieux et rare moment musical
