This music group from the Russian republic of Tuva near the Mongolian-Russian border. The most distinctive characteristic of Huun Huur Tu's music is throat singing in which the singers sing both the note and the note's overtones, producing two or three notes simultaneously. The group primarily uses native Tuvan instruments and plays mostly indigenous Tuvan folk music, but is also known to experiment with western instruments and electronic music.
