Saw the wonderful Tuvan throat singing group Huun-Huur-Tu at the Buckman Center here. The Tuvans are known for their special ability to sing two notes at once--one being an overtone that is shaped over their very low bass notes. It is amazing how the group conjurs up a diverse set of points of reference--a consort of viols, a country string band, a celtic band--all in the same concert. I wish that they had made more of an effort for us to understand their lyrics--they need opera supertitles!
