Throat singing and artistic research between Siberian folklore and shamanic tradition.
Ailing from Tuva, Siberia, Sainkho Namtchylak music is an intertwined mix of tradition and innovation which draws from the Siberian and Mongolian music tradition to reach modern sounds, all tied together by her pure and enchanting voice. She fell in love with music thanks to her grandmother and soon began studying both the traditional Tuvan repertoire and overtone singing, a singing practice until then reserved only to men. She completed her music studies in Moscow and soon after joined the Tuvan State Folk Ensemble with which she performed for a short while.She then went back to Moscow at the end of the Eighties and joined the experimental band Tri-O with which her vocal talent and marked melodic tendencies were best put to work. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, she moved to Vienna which she chose as base, but continued to travel a lot, performing with various groups around the world and working on the recording of albums that revolve around free improvisation. Her live performances combine her artistic research with her religious and popular music background.
