20:00 h voice & sound improvisation by Sainkho Namtchylak
/Grand Café SUD

Sainkho Namtchylak from Tuva, a republic in southern Siberia on the border with Mongolia, is a singer, sound and performance artist and poet. Her singing techniques are oriented both on Chöömej, the Tuvan variation of overtone singing, as well as on the extended vocal expressions of contemporary sound performance. She is considered as a wanderer between the worlds and times, between styles and arts - between the traditional music of Siberia, improvised music, free jazz and contemporary classical music. Her vocal technique is unique and supported by a poetic expressiveness.
