Throat singing virtuosos from Tuva.

Ever since their founding in the early nineties and the breakthrough album The Orphan’s Lament in 1994, the Tuvan quartet Huun-Huur-Tu has brought the rich, ritual throat chants of Central Asia to audiences all over the world. In doing so, they have not only made a name for themselves - they have played a unique role in spreading knowledge about traditional laryngeal singing in the world of modern music.

Huun-Huur-Tu - Orphan's Lament

Their success is remarkable and unpredictable - in 2002, Huun-Huur-Tu got a summer hit in Greece with a remix of the song “Eki Attar”. The ensemble went on to release a studio project entitled “Spirits of Tuva” with DJs of various nationalities, which dominated the European World Music Charts when it was released.

Since then, their success has led to movie soundtracks, a range of different musical collaborations and a recent book project about Tuvan culture. The quartet, still helmed by the original members Kaigal-ool Khovalyg and Sayan Bapa, has performed for kings and queens, music aficionados, in concert halls and at huge festival stages. They have also played memorable shows at Oslo World twice before - in 2009 and 2014. We are delighted to welcome them back for a third time this year!
