Editorial Reviews

Huun Huur Tu come from Tuva, a republic of the Russian Federation, a sparsely settled Siberian land of grasslands, boreal forests, and mountain ridges. Huun Huur Tu s music features rare instruments and preserves and develops some of the world's oldest forms of music making. The best-known genre of Tuvan music is xöömei (throat-singing) in which naturally produced vocal sounds create astonishingly unique textures and harmonics. The band s past collaborations range from Ry Cooder to The Kronos Quartet & Frank Zappa. The new album Eternal is a collaboration with electronic musician & record producer Carmen Rizzo (Niyaz, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Paul Oakenfold, Seal) who transforms this ancient music into an enticing blend of ambient electronic, exotic rhythms and lush acoustic textures. This wonderful album takes you through a dream-like sequence featuring bowed ancient strings colliding with low-end keyboards while the haunting voices of Huun Huur Tu howl through the mesmerizing pulses. A musical journey for all looking to escape.

In other reviews, I've written that anything by Huun Huur Tu is worth listening to if you like Tuvaan overtone singing, but this CD challenges that statement. Many of the songs on this CD will be familiar to those that have listened to their earlier, and superior, CDs such as Orphans Lament.

Unfortunately in this volume, these songs are obscured by the overlay of rather pointless modern music by Carmen Rizzo. The resulting aural mess does not display either Rizzo's or Huun Huur Tu's music to good advantage.

A new album born from the collaborative work of Huun Huur Tu, a band best known for their re-interpretation of Tuva's musical classics, and electronic musician/producer Carmen Rizzo, as well as expert composer and arranger Mark Governor, Eternal blends the rhythms of a traditional Mongolian culture with the latest sound studio electric re-imagining. The result is a captivating meld of old and new, creative in its application of melody and sure to excite listeners interested in experiencing a unique audio sensation. Highly recommended especially for public library collections international music album shelves. The tracks are Ancestors Call (5:47), Mother Taiga (6:49), Saryglarlar Maidens (5:46), Saryglarlar Reprise (1:12), Dogee Mountain (Interlude) (8:21), In Search of a Lost Past (4:59), Orphaned Child (5:10), and Tuvan Prayer (2:21).

Tuvan music is one of the most unusual sounds on earth, but it's flat out amazing. Since the music has an alien quality because of the throat singing and how two notes are done at the same time, I think the music has a more of an impact with an electronica background to fully take you to another world. It's almost like Tuvan music itself is from the past and you enjoy taking a trip listening to the lyrics. I can close my eyes and feel like I'm with them in Tuva.

In a way, this reminds me a lot of Spirits From Tuva - Huun-Huur-Tu, but instead of a Trance sample, Carmen Rizzo (who has done work for a lot of musicians), treats the music as something sacred and special.

Overall the album is a success, not only due to the difficulty it takes to mix two distinct styles, but how well it's done. This is a great World music album, and if you're up for trying something new - you can't go wrong with this stunning combination.

I wish I could tell you what, exactly, throat singing is. I make no claims at knowing much about "world" music (though I do have a boxed set that features some unaccompanied throat singing) but you'll know it when you hear it and will be mesmerized.

Sometimes "world music" is tossed into an electronic stew and the result is mediocre at best, an attempt by an electronic artist to show his cool by the samples he uses. This is not the case with this album.

The electronic music and the music from Huun Huur Tu enhance one another. You will be entranced by the music but Rizzo keeps the electronic as a buoy to elevate Huun Huur Tu's music and allow it to shine on its own.

An essential album.

I had read a prerelease article about this and so was anxious to hear it - I teach yoga and often use this in my classes. very well done, honors the art and elevates it as well.
