Chirgilchen is a group of musicians from Tuva, a small Russian province north of Western Mongolia.With the addition of Stephen Kent on didjeriudu the group is KARASHAY.
Singing the ancient folk songs in the Tuvan language, the group also plays hand made instruments. Atmospheric and mesmerizing 'throat singing' is almost too difficult to describe in words.
It must be heard to be believed – produced by resonating low sounds in the throat, creates a middle note and a haunting, flute-like harmonic.
