Tuvergen Band is a Mongolian Fusion-Folk trio based in Chicago, IL. Each performer brings his own musical tradition to the trio creating a blend of ancient Mongolian and Tuvan melodies with modern sensibilities and idiomatic world music rhythms. This is our take on modern nomadic music. Mongolian folk music draws heavily upon elements of the animals and nature of the region. The nomadic lifestyle has a deep spiritual connection with nature and the elements present in that land. Often there are imitations of animal sounds, weather, and the landscapes of the Mongolian steppe.

One of the most unusual and distinctive characteristics of Mongolian music is overtone singing, called “Khoomii”, and is a style of throat singing in which multiple pitches can be produced at the same time by the singer. In addition to Khoomi, all three gifted musicians will play traditional Mongolian instruments. Tickets: Adults $15, Seniors $14, Youth $5
