About the Tuvan National Orchestra


The Tuvan National Orchestra was founded in 2003. Over its history, this group has become a brand-name in Tuva, a symbol of its culture. They have won prizes in many regional, national, and international compeitions.


The soloists of the orchestra are virtuoso performers of all styles of Tuvan Throat Singing and also play majestically on Tuvan traditional instruments such as the igil, byzaanchy, doshpuluur, shoor, xomus, and others. 


The Orchestra rehearses at the Tuvan Cultural Center, which was founded to preserve and develop the traditions of Tuvan folklore, music, arts, and crafts.
