Sound Journey to Tuva 2018


After a 2016 ‘pilot’ Sound Journey to Tuva, Fusica/Mark van Tongeren presents a new Journey to Tuva in august 2018. An ideal way to explore a little-visited corner of the world with a guide who has travelled to Tuva for almost 25 years. You can experience Siberia’s wide-open steppe, its dense taiga, stunning rivers and lakes, rich culture, music and vibrant religious life. Though it is not a throat singing tour, you will get first-hand experience of Tuva’s famous throat singers, and receive instructions from local masters and your guide Mark. Those with a deeper interest in throat singing can stay longer in Tuva and get khöömei instruction through our network.


The tour will not be just for Mandarin speakers, and primarily conducted in English.
The rough dates are August 7 to August 22, with 12 days spent in Siberia. On Wednesday December 20 Mark van Tongeren, who leads the tour, will present the whole idea with full details in Taipei. Request a brochure if you are anywhere else and interested to learn more.

For the talk in Taipei you can register here or on Facebook. Full details will be available end of December 2017. Write us if you are interested in joining.

2016年,我們第一次舉辦了去圖瓦的聲音之旅。這次Fusica和德蘇(Mark van Tongeren) 結合了他在圖瓦25年的經驗,即將有個全新的圖瓦之行規劃。你可以體現西伯利亞廣闊的草原、茂密的針樹林帶、壯闊的河流和湖、豐富的文化、音樂,以及宗教生活。這次雖然不以喉唱課程為主軸,我們還是會聽到許多著名的喉唱歌手演出,也會跟當地跟大師以及德蘇學唱。不過,想學的人可以在圖瓦多待幾天,我們可以為你聯絡適合的老師。
