    Alash are masters of Tuvan throat singing, a remarkable technique for singing multiple pitches at the same time. Masters of traditional Tuvan instruments as well as the art of throat singing, Alash are deeply committed to traditional Tuvan music and culture. At the same time, they are fans of western music. Believing that traditional music must constantly evolve, the musicians subtly infuse their songs with western elements, creating their own unique style that is fresh and new, yet true to their Tuvan musical heritage.

    What does throat singing sound like? "Imagine a human bagpipe-a person who could sing a sustained low note while humming an eerie, whistle-like melody. For good measure, toss in a thrumming rhythm similar to that of a jaw harp, but produced vocally-by the same person, at the same time." -Newsweek (March 17, 2006)

    Where is Tuva? Tuva (sometimes spelled Tyva) sits at the southern edge of Siberia, with Mongolia to its south. Over the centuries, Tuva has been part of Chinese and Mongolian empires, and shares many cultural ties with Mongolia. In 1944 it became part of the USSR, and until the late physicist Richard Feynman drew attention to it, was largely unknown to westerners. Tuva is now a member of the Russian Federation.

    In 1976, Yves Lambert was one of the founding members of La Bottine Souriante. For 26 years he was a major figure in the band, which was both famous in Quebec, and internationally. Yves Lambert figures among the most influential players in the roots Quebecer revival. He is known for his unique ability to translate anecdotal, poetic or political texts into songs. His work as a songwriter and his capacity to create unique musical moods make him a key figure in folk music production. Some Quebecer critics have defined him as a « leading light in the traditional aesthetic of our cultural heritage » In January of 2003, pushed by the wind, he put his boots on and went searching for new musical adventures. Always on the look out for innovative trends and attentive to the new guard of Quebecer musicians, he ended up surrounding himself with young talent and created the Bébert Orchestra in 2004, and later the Yves Lambert Trio in 2010. The Yves Lambert Trio showcases the unique connection between maturity and youth by creating a new world of poetry and celebration. Yves Lambert’s charisma and talent, coupled with Tommy Gauthier and Olivier Rondeau’s virtuosity and passion, the nuances of their arrangements and their distinct harmony make this trio one-of-a-kind musical experience. By reviving undiscovered songs and adding their own brand of energy, multicultural ambiance and colourful sounds there’s really nothing quite like the Yves Lambert Trio. Yves Lambert Trio is a breath of fresh and happy air on the musical Quebecer scene.
