Tuvan throat singing describes the wild-sounding songs created by musicians in the southern Siberian and Mongolian Steppe region of Central Asia who, for want of a better explanation, use their throats as if they were a didgeridoo. Huun Huur Tu is a Tuvan throat singing string band, who hail from the Russian republic of Tuva near the Mongolian border. The group, which features Kaigal-ool Khovalyg, Sayan Bapa, Radik Tyulyush and Alexei Saryglar, plays authentic Tuvan stringed instruments and drums, which accompany their throat singing. However, they are also a band that is open to bringing modern influences into its sound, adding guitar and at times even electronics.
