Huun–Huur–Tu are a music group from Tuva, a republic of Russia located on the Mongolia–Russia border.

The group perform indigenous Tuvan folk music mixed with traditional throat singing, in which the singers sing both the note and an overtone, thus producing two or three notes simultaneously.

Native Tuvan instruments such as the igil khomus [Tuvan jaw harp], doshpuluur, and dünggür [shaman drum] compliment their sound. They have collaborated with many musicians including Frank Zappa, The Chieftains, The Kronos Quartet and the Kodo Drummers.

Limited unreserved seating. Ages 18+
