Huun Huur Tu and Tinariwen

Two excellent shows coming in November to the Old Town School of Folk Music:

Huun Huur Tu:
The world's premier Tuvan throat singers, Huun Huur Tu, are always a sight and sound to behold. Their multi-phonic vocal technique is "peculiar, haunting, hypnotic...It is wind and rushing water and crumbling earth, it is called throat singing and masters of the technique are headed our way..." - The Montreal Gazette.

The Orphan's Lament
"The Orphan's Lament" (Huun-Huur-Tu)

and I'm especially excited by:
Tinariwen The triumphant return of Tinariwen! This group of amazing Touareg musicians are members of the nomadic culture of northern Mali's Sahara region and completely mesmerized the 2005 Folk & Roots Festival crowd with their raw, hypnotic desert blues.

Mamadou Diabate

The Festival in the Desert Tour pairs Tinariwen up with Mamadou Diabate, who grew up in southern Mali. He comes from a family of griots, performing that traditional role in his community as he perfected his playing of the kora, the 21-string harp. This show is not to be missed!

"Amassakoul" (Tinariwen)

Aman Iman: Water is Life
"Aman Iman: Water is Life" (Tinariwen)

"Heritage" (Mamadou Diabate)

We've discussed our love for music of the desert previously, a few times in fact. Also have mentioned Tuva a time or two.

Hope to see you there! (Am not kidding)
