TUVAN LEGENDS AND TALES, THE CAMEL

THE CAMEL

Believe it or not, the camel was once the most magnificent of all the animals! It’s true! He had beautiful big horns with golden tips, and a long thick, bushy tail.
Day after day the camel used to stand beside the river, admiring his reflection in the water.
One day while he was standing there, down from the hills came the Siberian stag. ” Ekii, Teve!” said the stag. This is the way to say, “Hi camel!” in Tuvan. ” My brother,” he went on, ” you have the most magnificent horns I have ever seen. Won’t you loan them to me? I’m going to a party and I’d like to get dressed up.” ” My horns? ” said the camel. ” I’d hate to give away my horns.” ” Dont worry,” said the stag, ” I’ll bring them right back tomorrow.” ” Tomorrow? All right,” said the camel, ” But make sure that you do.” And so Teve the camel took off his magnificent horns and loaned them to stag. The stag ran off into the mountains.
Teve stood beside the river, admiring what was left of his reflection. Pretty soon along came the horse. “Ekii,Teve!” said the horse. ” My brother, you have the most beautiful tail I have ever seen. Won’t you loan it to me? I’m on my way to a horse-race, and I’m sure I’d win if ı had your tail.” “Chock!” said the camel. That is the Tuvan way to say, ” No!” ” I already loaned out my horns and I just can’t load my tail too.” ” Don’t worry, brother. I will bring it right back after the race is over.” ” You’re sure?” said Teve. “All right, but make sure you bring it right back.” He took off his long, thick, bushy tail and gave it to the horse. The horse galloped away across the steppe.
The camel stood there beside the river, peering off into the distance, looking for his friends. He waited all day. He waited the next day, and the day after that. Neither the stag nor the horse ever came back. The stag stayed far away in the mountains and forests. As for the horse, whenever he meets a camel, he shies away.
And from that day to this, the camel has remained the angriest of all the animals!

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.

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.

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.


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.

From the independent republic of Tuva, bordering Mongolia, Huun Huur Tu performs an ear-twisting vocal technique called Khöömei. In this style, a single vocalist produces two or three notes simultaneously, often a low drone along with a high-pitched whistle. Accompanied by traditional string and percussion instruments, the four-member ensemble sings rhythmic songs that capture the magic of the Siberian steppe.
