Beyond the Dargan
Shodekeh has engaged in an ongoing musical partnership with the Tuvan singing ensemble Alash since they first met in 2011. Alash hails from Kyzyl, Tuva, a republic in Central Asia. This trio of master throat singers (xöömeizhi) brings this tradition of throat singing (xöömei) to its collaborations with Western performers, including Shodekeh. Featured here are live performances, radio recordings, documentaries, and short films that have grown out of their evolving partnership.
