Alash: Tonight

In spite of the heavy rain, the show went on at Princeton Shopping Center and the mesmerizing Tuvan ensemble Alash performed to an appreciative audience. Members of Alash (left to right) are: Nachyn Choodu, Bady-Dorzhu Ondar, Ayan-ool Sam and Ayan Shirizhik. These world-class, award-winning musicians were introduced by their interpreter and manager, Wisconsin-born Sean Quirk. Sean went to study music in Tuva on a Fulbright fellowship and never left. Alash continues their US Tour during July and August. Their latest CD is entitled Alash.
