The may performances in Moscow clubs of the group “Alash” and Metropolitan seminars shaman AI-Churek Oyun ended with a joint action. In the Center of tea culture on may 22, they spent the evening of Tuvan culture, and then went to the festival “Ancol” in Switzerland.

Carpets, Chinese and Japanese motifs in the interior, function rooms, bubbling fountains, soft music for relaxation, smells of incense. Go here only barefoot, razuvshis in the wardrobe. Sitting on the Ottoman. In the menu of different varieties of green tea.

A pleasant surprise was that the hall for the concert had the decoration of the interior space of the Yurt. From a large wooden disc on the ceiling of the wall in left pole, forming a cone shape above his head. In the center of the room is an artificial fireplace made of stones and candles. It is somewhat strange that with such a design of the tea room named “Heavenly boat”. But the relationship with sky is still there: in the form of the second tier, where tea drinkers and Eastern music can be reclining. Avoid “unfortunate cases of tea”, says the sign when entering the hall, guests are asked not to use in the “boat” mobile phones.

Gorovici skillfully familiar with all traditional instruments and styles khoomeya. They became a new generation of professional musicians and singers, promote our art worldwide.

The young performers presented the audience with his own interpretation of Tuvan folk songs “Dunguldai”, “ene-SAI”, “Kara-Braaaa”, “DECA-PA”, “the chagytai lake”. In the performance of the trio of “Alash” took part and by the fourth, it is not provided by the program. The open window of the hall came out of the forest. When the singers started ringtones khoomeya, joined local… the Nightingale, which could not tolerate competition. Trills of the Nightingale, the jingle of Sugita and the mourning of ISIS has created a harmony of natural sounds and beautifully decorated each other.

The shamanic rite of the consecration of the attendees made AI-Churek Oyun with assistant. Dim lights in the hall, the smell of artisha, execution algisa, the roar of the tambourine and whirling shaman at the improvised hearth moved all in the space of Tuvan Yurt and gave a presentation about the ancient rituals of our people.
