Alash Tuvan Throat Singers Tour USA

From The Valley Breeze and Peeptoad Coffee House in Foster, Road Island today:

Peeptoad Coffehouse to present Alash Tuvan Throat Singers

FOSTER - Peeptoad Coffeehouse will present the Alash Tuvan Throat Singers on Saturday, March 6, 8 p.m., at the Foster Country Club, 67 Johnson Road. The group will also be in Ellenburg Depot, NY on Feb 25 and in Dorset, VT on Feb 26.

(Ellenburg Depot, NY is about 2 hours from Montpelier by way of Burlington. Dorset, VT is about the same time and distance from Montpelier by the way of Rutland VT).

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.

Passed down through the generations but largely unheard by the outside world, throat singing is now the subject of international fascination and has become Tuva's best known export.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for children if purchased by Jan. 31; and $20 for adults and $12 for children, after Jan. 31.
