ⓘ Huun-Huur-Tu

Huun-Huur-Tu is a music group from Tuva, a Russian Federation republic on the Mongolian border.

Huun Huur Tu performs throat singing, in which the singers sing more than one note at a time. One of the notes sometimes sounds like a flute, whistle or bird, but is actually a persons voice.

The group mostly uses native Tuvan instruments such as the igil, khomus Tuvan jaw harp, doshpuluur, and dunggur shaman drum. However, in recent years, the group has started using western instruments, such as the guitar. Huun Huur Tus music is mostly Tuvan folk music, but they also experiment with Western instruments and electronic music.
