Lincoln Hall, B20
Dept of Music, 101 Lincoln Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853-4101, USA
A conversation with Assistant Professor of Music Joe Lerangis and Tamir Khargana, lead singer of Tuvergen Band. Tamir will discuss musical styles from Tuva and Mongolia, as well as his own creative processes in blending those styles into a more contemporary sound, drawing inspiration from American blues, bluegrass, and modern electroacoustic music. Tamir will give an introduction into throat-singing (khöömii), and his two main instruments, the horse-head fiddle (morin khuur), and tovshuur, a lute-like instrument common to Western Mongolia and Tuva.
