Albina Degtyareva’s AYARKHAAN female ensemble is giving three concerts in London, UK, on October 21-22, 2011. Learn more about the group and concerts’ time & locations.

AYARKHAAN

Ayarkhaan, the female ensemble from the Republic of Sakha-Yakutia in Siberia, have been at the forefront of the revival and innovation in Sakha music for many years. The principal instrument of Ayarkhaan is a khomus (jew’s harp) and the trio, led by Albina Degtyareva, also employ a variety of animal imitation techniques to create a unique interplay between human and natural sounds.

Sakha is a land of hunters and herders, and its music-making culture is a way to seek communion with the natural world, to interact with it and reproduce its ambience.

Their performances create a flow that takes the listener on a fascinating journey into the Siberian soundscape – the horses, the birds, the wind…the proto-musical world where natural and human made sounds blend.

They became a sensation at this summer’s BBC Proms and WOMAD festival
