“Come join Prana at this special concert, A Moment of Peace, an opportunity to take a pause in the busy Holiday Season for an afternoon of beautiful music.”
“The age old sacred music of Tibetan Buddhist multiphonic chant and Tuvan throat singing are the roots from which PRANA’s sound has grown. The technique of these ancient vocalizations is to shape the mouth and throat into a sympathetic resonating chamber for the voice. This produces a second beautiful high whistling harmonic or overtone.  PRANA’s singers use their regular singing voice instead of the low gravely drone characteristic of the Tibetan and Tuvan sounds. They apply the fundamental overtone techniques of these older traditions to the “natural voice” to sing two mellifluous pitches at once.  By using the natural singing voice the singers of PRANA can move between any pitches that they can sing with overtones added above them. This completely opens up the possibilities for use of harmonics in singing. Now, in addition to a drone with harmonics they can sing parallel movement of pitch and harmonic, different pitches sharing one harmonic, or a fully developed melody with a harmonic harmony.  Singing as a group in this unique style they create beautiful rising harmonies, shimmering vocal textures, and high arcing melodies.” Show lasts 60+ mins.
