April 18, 2005: From harmonic transcendence to sublime harmonies, David Hykes and Las Rubias del Norte connect musically.
Listen to this show: RealAudio
Interview and live performance with David Hykes.
Composer and educator David Hykes has mastered overtone singing known as Harmonic Chant, the skill developed by Tibetan monk and Mongolian nomads that allows them to sing low and high notes simultaneously. Hykes and his ensemble The Harmonic Choir are celebrating their 30th year of creating enlightenment-dedicated music. We talked about the month-long festival devoted to his work at the Rubin Museum of Art (which is dedicated to Art of the Himalayas). David also gave us a brief live performance of his overtone signing.

Live performance by Las Rubias del Norte (Taylor Bergren-Chrisman: double bass/ Greg Burrows: percussion/ Olivier Conan: cuatro, vocals/ Emily Hurst: vocals, glockenspiel/ Allyssa Lamb: vocals, melodica/ Giancarlo Vulcano: guitar/ Greg Stare: percussion)
Las Rubias Del Norte storm and swoon their way through a mixture of boleros, cha-cha-cha, cumbias with lieder and cowboy songs. The ensemble is lifted by the angelic voices of Allyssa Lamb and Emily Hurst, two renegades from the NY Choral Society, while the band boys from Brooklyn, France and Colombia hold up their musical backbone.
