The members of Alash Ensemble are masters of Tuvan throat singing, a remarkable technique for singing multiple pitches at the same time. The band members are masters of traditional Tuvan instruments such as the Igil, the Doshpuluur and the Byzaanchy as well. Alash are deeply committed to traditional Tuvan music and culture. At the same time, they are fans of western music. Believing that traditional music must constantly evolve, the musicians subtly infuse their songs with western elements, creating their own unique style that is fresh and new, yet true to their Tuvan musical heritage. They have performed with western artists such as Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, and count the Sun Ra Arkestra and Jimi Hendrix among their influences.
