Monte-Carlo Spring Arts Festival: closing concert by the Chirgilchin Ensemble
14 April 2019| €26
Monte-Carlo Spring Arts Festival: closing concert by the Chirgilchin Ensemble on Sunday 14 April 2019, at 6 pm in Opéra de Monte-Carlo – Salle Garnier.
On the programme: traditional Mongolian music and songs
The Mongolian vocal tradition is one-of-a-kind: it’s based on overtone singing meaning producing a second sharper sound on top of the usual bass made by the vocal chords. The Chirgilchin Ensemble formed in 1996 in southern Siberia led by the singer Igor Koshkendey, an amazing artist who sings in Tuvan, the local language. The word “chirgilchin” could be translated as “miracle” as you have to admit that this ensemble’s joyful music that makes you want to dance is packed with wonder and magic as the way it treats your ears is so incredible!
