The Alash Ensemble is a trio of master overtone singers (xöömei) from Tuva, a tiny republic in the heart of Central Asia. The ancient tradition of throat singing developed among the nomadic herdsmen of Central Asia, people who lived in yurts, rode horses, raised yaks, sheep and camels, and had a close spiritual relationship with nature.
