Kronos Quartet & Tanya Tagaq - A String Quartet In Her Throat
I've been fascinated by Inuit Throat Singing from Canada and Tuva in Russia since we went to a story telling festival dedicated to the North where we heard and watched these two musical cultures in action.
The CD Early Music by The Kronos Quartet is one of the most beautiful CD's I've ever heard. It includes an extrordinary piece called Uleg Khem played by Huun Huur Tu and the Kronos Quartet.
Here The Kronos Quartet colaborate with Tanya Tagaq from Canada.
