Huun Huur Tu will perform with native instruments and authentic costumes at Miami Hamilton’s Parrish Auditorium on Saturday, Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m.
Huun Huur Tu hail from the high pastures of the Altai Mountains in south central Siberia. Huun Huur Tu are best known for their throat singing style of xoomei, in which they sing both the note and the drone overtones producing two or three notes simultaneously. This Tuvan acoustic quartet makes serious, strangely universal music (like a flute, whistle or bird) out of some of the planets quirkiest acoustics. The members of Huun Huur Tu have contributed their unique vocals to albums and performances by Frank Zappa, The Chieftains, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, The Kronos Quartet and L. Shankar and Ry Cooder’s soundtrack of the film, Geronimo.
Tickets for this performance are $25 for adults, $23 for senior citizens and $16 for college students and children under 12.
The 2014-2015 Artist Series at Miami Hamilton’s Parrish Auditorium will continue with Balsam Range and Helen Highwater on Feb. 28.
