Nomadic cultures have produced virtuosic instrumental repertoires, and these are the specialty of Tengir-Too, a Kyrgyz collective whose name means “Celestial Mountains” and refers to the mountain range –better known by its Chinese name, Tien Shan – that towers over the high alpine passes linking Kyrgyzstan and China. Tengir-Too seamlessly combines tradition and innovation in their laconic arrangements of Kyrgyz melodies for a variety of small ensembles. Performance programme features young musicians from this rising generation of Kyrgyz performers.
