This is a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration, and celebration of cultural diversity.
Michael Ormiston, Candida Valentino, BlackMoon1348 are joined by three Buddhist monks from Tashi Lhunpo Monastery (South India/Tibet) to create a huge cinematic spectacle, combining the spiritual insight of Tibetan chants and mantras, the sound of the dungchen (Tibetan Longhorn) gyaling (Tibetan Oboe) and percussive ritual instruments with BlackMoon1348’s drone and Sub-Harmonic throat singing and Michael & Candida’s unique speciality in Mongolian overtone/undertone singing, and incredibly influencial talented instrumentation.
Michael Ormiston and Candida Valentino are the UK’s most respected and experienced Mongolian Khöömii Overtone/Undertone Singers. Their unique concerts cross the boundaries between traditional Mongolian Music, Sacred Sound Journeys using Tibetan singing bowls, symphonic gongs, experimental improvisations with live electronics and original compositions on their vast collection of acoustic instruments.
