Our KUTX family is always working on interesting things. This week, in the short lull between the two weekends of Austin City Limits, host John Aielli did an interview we just had to share.

Aielli sat down with three throat singers from Tuva – a republic of about 300,000 people that's a subject of Russia, and is near Mongolia. The members of the group Alash Ensemble have trained in this style of song since their youth.

Though the group has gotten some broad attention, including collaborations with artists such as Béla Fleck, we'll bet you've never heard anything quite like this before.
