Tuvan Throat Singing - Saturday Hillside 7pm

Learn this beautiful ancient vocal art used over many centuries for performance as well as for shamanistic / spiritual purposes.
For first-time students, this workshop will focus on getting the basic Kargyraa sound, the didjeridoo-like sound produced in the vocal folds (as seen on the movie “Genghis Blues”.)
For more experienced students, Liron will teach how to produce multiple notes at once using over-tones – singing a drone note while producing high whistling sounds by manipulating the mouth and throat muscles.

 

Biography:

Liron is a NY-based performing musician and composer who has worked with Balkan Beat Box and Omar Faruk Tekbilek among others.
He is also well known as a founding member of the internationally known group Raquy and the Cavemen.
He grew up in Israel surrounded by the cultures of the Middle East, yet fascinated with Rock and Heavy Metal music, Liron was always drawn to combining the two styles in a harmonious way, which led him to invent the Dümset - The Middle Eastern drum set.
Liron also specializes in Tuvan Throat Singing, an ancient art from the land of Tuva (southern Siberia, just north of Mongolia) using intricate techniques in the mouth and throat to produce multiple notes simultaneously by producing under- and over-tones and creates a transcendental effect on the listener.
