BATSÜKH DORJ

Fri 11 Oct
19:30 - 21:30
Doors open 18:00

This remarkable musician perfectly masters the different throat singing styles.

Accompanied by Johanni Curtet, specialist in throat-singing in the West who arranged and produced her first album, Batsu?kh sings us about his nomadic culture through mountains and travels, notably by imitating the rhythms of horses and the flow of water.

 

Tsengel, the western most village of Mongolia. In the remote foothills of the upper Altai mountains, Batsukh Dorj perpetuates khoomei in his community. This remarkable musician perfectly masters the different throat singing styles typical of the Tuvans: khoomei (contracted throat singing), sygyt (whistled throat singing), kargyraa (deep throat singing), ezenggileer (lit. “stirrups”), and borbangnadyr (lit. “rolling”).

Accompanied by Johanni Curtet, specialist in throat-singing in the West who arranged and produced her first album, Batsu?kh sings us about his nomadic culture through mountains and travels, notably by imitating the rhythms of horses and the flow of water. A rare and complete artist: luthier, he masters his own sound; and composer he brings a major contribution to his musical tradition.

This Altai blues is a sound that is its, and that of this encounter between a Tuvan musician and a French researcher-musician in search of harmonic sounds, where the art of kho?o?mei unites them. Seeking a folk acoustic sound in vast spaces, it is a free and spontaneous interpretation.

Compositions in the codes of the tradition, revisited Tuvan traditional music, a fiddle that makes us forget the temporality, a lute that punctuates our cavalcades, the overtones that connect us to the elements, a timeless music, in tribute to our ancestors.
