Huun Huur Tu is the first and still greatest traditional band from Tuva in southern Siberia. The tireless overtone-singing spike-fiddle-wielding marvels serenade us in-studio midway through a winter North American tour that includes a gig at Joe's Pub in NY on Saturday January 29. (Also check out their new cd,
Ancestors Call on World Village Records.) Special thanks to our illustrious engineer Jason Sigal and to Bruce Sherman from Hudson River Performing Arts Center, who presented Huun Huur Tu's recent free concert at the UBS Atrium, Lincoln Harbor (and also present free concerts on the waterfront at Lincoln Harbor during the summer).
