Shodekeh and Alash Ensemble
Shodekeh has engaged in an ongoing musical collaboration 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.
Shodekeh and Dr. Charles Limb
Shodekeh has worked with Dr. Charles Limb, a Neurotologist and professor at the University of California San Fransisco, to investigate the science of music and the anatomy of musicians. They presented together at the Salzburg Global Seminar in 2015, and worked to explore what happens inside a beatboxer's body when they perform.
