Artist Info: The nomadic Tuvan throat singing collective Huun Huur Tu has joined up with electronic musician/producer and two-time Grammy Award nominee Carmen Rizzo to create a follow-up to their 2009 album, Eternal (Electrofone Music).
Titled Koshkyn (the Tuvan word for "nomad"), the album was recorded in 2017 in a hotel room turned makeshift recording studio in Astana, Kazakhstan around the group's performance at World Expo 2017. Rizzo then produced and finished the music in Los Angeles.
Highlights from the original collaboration include a feature in Time Magazine as well as heavy airplay on NPR tastemaker radio stations KCRW & KEXP. Huun Huur Tu has played Hollywood Bowl alongside Flying Lotus & Animal Collective and has performed around the world—from Russia, to the USA, Canada, Central Asia, China & Thailand.
