THE MYSTERY OF TUVAN KHÖÖMEI

 

THE MYSTERY OF TUVAN KHÖÖMEI ( THROAT SINGING)

What is the history behind the developement of khöömei?

The phenomenon of Tuvan throat-singing, with its various styles of performance, continues to amaze people. The spiritual world of the Tuvans, like their lifestyle itself, consolidated and embodied the freedom-loving impulses of the steppe dwellers, the inhabitants of Inner Asia.

If one imagines how endless a steppe road is, how unhurried a Tuvan horse’s tread or pensive a camel’s step is, how far steppe roads and mountain paths stretch, then it will not be difficult to realize that the life of a Tuvan in the steppe is inconceivable without sygyt-khöömei, a symbol of the Tuvan steppe that is as quiet, measured, and interminable as life itself. It is not without reason that Tuvans puzzled ethnographers when they could not answer the question: “How old are you?” The matter was not that they were unable to count. This question itself made no sense to them because time per se was an abstract notion.

Nature created a striking acoustic effect in the mountains and steppes of Tuva, where every loud word echoes with deafening reiterations. Over time Tuvans learned how to extract from these sounds the incomparable melodies that are the hallmark of the Tuvan national singing tradition. This is why from time immemorial Tuvan throat singing has been the eternal companion of singers and storytellers.

A khöömeizhi was a welcome and honored guest in any yurt, who always gave his listeners the gift of his music, born in the heart and soul of his people. The melodies of khöömei accompanied the Tuvan people in all their joys and sorrows.

Khöömei Is a phenomenon close to the soul of the Tuvan people a means of expressing the Tuvan worldview, a symbol of Tuvan spirituality, and the key to the spirit of the Tuvan people. It is in khöömei that Tuvans found consolation in their hour of need ancient times khöömei has helped Tuvans persevere, overcome hardships with dignity, and preserve their humanity.

If a nation loses its own unique identity, it will disappear from the face of the earth. Current data make it abundantly clear that not only of researchers, but also members of the younger generation are trying to preserve the art of singing, as well as the customs, rituals, and traditions of the Tuvan people. By exploring and researching Tuvan throat singing, we are able to revive all genres of musical culture long songs (uzun yrlar), short songs (kiska yrlar), refrains and ditties (kozhamyktar), as well as instrumental works for such traditional instruments as igil, byzaanchi, doshpuluur, khomus (mouth harp), and other bowed, plucked, wind, and percussion instruments

Khöömei is an art that attracts the attention not only of connoisseurs of folk music, but also of all those who would like to learn about the history of the music and the spiritual world of the Tuvan people, and of their lyrical and ritual songs. Every ethnic group has contributed to the development of human civilization and global cultural heritage. Tuvans likewise have their own contribution of great value, which has been passed down for centuries from generation to generation, and that is khöömei. Locals have preserved in memory several techniques of this art, including khöömei, ezengilleer borbangnadyr kargyraa, and sygyt.

Huun-Huur-Tu

Huun-Huur-Tu

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.

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.

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.

A new stage in Radik’s career will be the solo album  “Chalama” which will be released in late 2012 or beginning of 2013. “Chalama” are colored ribbons that are tied up to the branches of a 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. The music written by Radik is like ribbons in the branches of the World Tree of Music and Harmony.

Chalama  includes both Radik’s own compositions and traditional Tuvan songs arranged by him.
