A unique combination of two cutting-edge British musicians
and a Siberian shaman - one of the most astounding performers of the
music of Tuva, and master of the Kaargiraa throat-singing style.

While Gendos Chamzyryn comes directly from the tradition, Tim Hodgkinson
and Ken Hyder have been exploring shamanic music through field trips to
Siberia since 1990.

Because of the particular individual backgrounds of each member, K-Space
sounds nothing like any of the overtone-singing bands to have come out
of Tuva in the past 10 years. These have generally performed the folk
songs of Tuva, or adaptations of them, whereas K-Space is about the
wilder shamanic element in Tuvan culture - the undercurrent of energy
that Chamzyryn is always reaching for in his music.

The scope of K-Space is enormous. At times it can sound like a kind of
folk music you've never heard before. At other times it can remind you
of a powerful rock experience underpinned by Chamzyryn's drive on
the "Dungur" shaman's drum. In all cases, the ethnic dimension of K-
Space music is present on the molecular level rather than as syntax or
reference.
