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

Radik Tyulyush - Altay Mountains

Radik Tyulyush – Altay Mountains

 Radik Tyulyush, Tuvan singer and musician, began his career with rock music (“UER”, from 1993 till present, and “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.

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.
