With generous underwriting from The Ohio Arts Council through its Impact Program, ORMACO proudly presents the award-winning Alash Ensemble on October 17, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. at Highland High School Auditorium located at 4150 Ridge Road, Medina, Ohio.
Hailing from Tuva in Central Asia, the musicians have won numerous international awards in Tuvan throat singing, a technique which allows vocalists to sing multiple pitches at one time. Ensemble members also play a variety of Tuvan traditional instruments, contributing to an overall musical experience that a Washington Post review described as “absolutely stunning.” Alash has also collaborated with such diverse musical groups as Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, beat boxer Shodekeh and American classical musicians. With their “new old” Tuvan music, Alash stays true to the cultural traditions of their musical heritage, while blending new influences, to create a captivating and utterly unique musical experience.
