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.

THE MYSTERY OF TUVAN KHÖÖMEI

Is there a connection between khöömei and shamanic rituals?

The shaman acts as the physical manifestation of supernatural forces. As a representative of an animistic religion, the shaman, like ancient priests, used to heal people with the melodic, droning sounds of khöömei and with the khomus, which was known as aza dyly – the “devil’s tongue.” A few small silver bells were sewn onto the back of the shaman’s robe. According to the Tuvan shamaness Dürzü from Tsengel sumon (county) in the Bayan-Ölgii region of western Mongolia, simply the glint of the silver bells made all the evil spirits which are around immediately fly away.

The khomus a sounds of khöömei were traditionally considered to be paraphernalia of female shamans. Tuvan shamans believed that the ringing of the bells made black clouds disappear and evil spirits go away. Tuvans always thought of the bells that were attached to the back of shamanic robes as living beings, in many ways similar to humans.The belief in the beneficial effect of the bells sewn on the back of a shaman’s robe is based on the fact that humans’ inner organs are attuned to certain tones, and the whole body is a sensitive musical instrument that resonates with the surrounding sound field. The lower tones of khöömei have a calming effect, while the higher tones have a stimulating effect. The ringing of bells heals children with mental disorders. It was even a custom in Tuva to put people “possessed” by spirits “under the shaman’s robe,” as the evil spirits that beset such people could not endure the sound of bells. The same would be done to children who had suffered a severe fright. And when a woman gave birth to a child, the shaman would sing kargyraa.
Why were khöömei and kargyraa, when performed as part of shamanic rituals, associated with treating women during childbirth? Could it be that khöömei is a central energy “channel,” the “core* of the human body or of the spinal cord? The problem is how to teach every person to turn his attention inward, inside himself. Our internal being is the manifestation of that energy that is called the energy of the universe.

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.

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.

Мастер горлового пения из Тувы выступит на The Spirit Of Tengri

RADİK TYULYUSH

RADİK TYULYUSH

Мастер горлового пения из Тувы Радик Тюлюш приедет в Алматы для участия в фестивале The Spirit Of Tengri, передает корреспондент Tengrinews.kz. Мультиинструменталист и певец выступит со своим проектом “Чалама”.

Уникальность горлового пения состоит в том, что человек может извлекать от двух и больше тонов одновременно. Происходит расщепление звука на основной тон, бурдон, и мелодический тон – обертон. Складывается впечатление, что поют два человека, а не один. Радик Тюлюш годами оттачивал свое мастерство. Он уверен, что этому искусству может научиться любой человек, если будет практиковаться.

Горловому пению и игре на народных инструментах тувинский музыкант научился благодаря своему деду, у которого гостил каждое лето в далекой таежной деревне. Как отмечают мастера голосового пения, их композиции – не что иное, как имитация природных звуков – человек их облекает в художественную форму.

 

Тюлюш является выпусником Кызылского училища искусств и Восточно-Сибирской Государственной академии культуры и искусств. Радик Тюлюш также является солистом всемирно известной тувинской группы “Хуун-Хуур-ту”. С 1998 по 2003 год Тюлюш был участником популярного тувинского этно-рок-коллектива “Ят-Ха”.

Выступление виртуозного музыканта и певца на фестивале современной этнической музыки The Spirit Of Tengri поистине является уникальным событием для Казахстана.

Ранее сообщалось, что концерт пройдет 7 июня на площади перед Дворцом Республики. На фестивале выступят этнические исполнители из Бурятии, Якутии, Австрии, Японии, Эквадора и многих других стран. Это артисты, поющие по всему миру в жанре этнической музыки, мастера горлового пения и виртуозы игры на самобытных инструментах. На сцене также выступят казахстанские артисты. Генеральным партнером фестиваля выступил Kaspi Bank. Мероприятие проводится при поддержке акимата Алматы.
